The Nasdaq Composite Index powered to its first close above 4000 Dec. 29, having cracked 3000 scant weeks earlier, on Nov. 3. And the tech-charged measure was hardly done then, finishing Friday at a record 4914.77 -- just 85.23 points from 5000.

With the Comp up about 124% since the beginning of 1999, is a top at hand, or will the galloping gauge smash through yet another millennium mark as soon as this week?

When will the Nasdaq break 5000?


By midweek.

By week's end.

More than a week from now.
