Our indexes broke out of the doldrums Wednesday as tech shares proved too attractive for traders. A mild buying spree helped break the markets out of the red, and the Dow had its first positive close in six days.

The Nasdaq-100 tracking stock rose 0.6%, or 22 cents, to $36.58, on moderate volume of 71.7 million shares.

At the closing bell, the InformationWeek 100 index was up 1%, or 3.33 points, to 325.82, and the Nasdaq index had gained 0.9%, or 17.54 points, to 2,022.98. The Dow rose 0.3%, or 35.25 points, to 10,601.62, and the S&P 500 rose 0.4%, or 4.58 points, to 1,143.67.
