Rising long-term interest rates sparked by a fear of inflation sent technology stocks tumbling Thursday.

The Nasdaq Composite Index /zigman2/quotes/210598365/realtime COMP +0.51% fell 3.5%, while the even more technology-weighted Nasdaq-100 Index /zigman2/quotes/210598364/realtime NDX +0.63% , which is tracked by Invesco QQQ Trust /zigman2/quotes/208575548/composite QQQ +0.61% , dropped 3.6%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA +0.89% was down 1.8%, while the S&P 500 Index /zigman2/quotes/210598364/realtime NDX +0.63% pulled back 2.4%.

The ARK Innovation ETF /zigman2/quotes/204808965/composite ARKK -0.71% , the high-flying tech-oriented exchange traded fund with Tesla Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203558040/composite TSLA -0.99% as its largest holding, skidded 6.4%.

The Nasdaq-100 has now given up its entire gain for 2021 — declining 0.5% — while the other broader indexes listed above have all risen.

Illustrating a perceived rotation to value stocks amid rising interest rates and the indicated fear of inflation , the Russell 1000 Value index /zigman2/quotes/210598148/delayed RLV +0.52% has risen 6.1% in 2021, even after a 1.8% decline on Feb. 25.
