The technology sector is having a bad year, so far. Tech stocks can be growth stocks, but factors like war and inflation can make the market bearish.

At these times, some investors may withdraw money from these stocks and put them into more stable investments, including bonds.

The S&P/TSX capped information technology index has lost almost 35% since the start of the year. But heading into June, there seems to be a sense of optimism with the TSX Composite Index posting gains for six straight days.
