2 Reasons This Crash in Tech Stocks Is Not the Dot-Com Bubble 2.0

Margin levels skyrocketed last year in a very similar fashion to what we saw in 1999, and recently, small-cap technology stocks have seen their prices tumble as much as 90%, not unlike two decades ago. If you lived through the internet bubble, there’s likely a lot of emotional scar tissue still present that would lead you to believe it’s all happening again.
