NEW YORK (AP) _ Technology stocks led a broad advance today, with the Dow industrials jumping as much as 155 points after gaining 150 on Monday.

Just before the close on Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average was up 144 points at 8,719, erasing another chunk of a 1,000-point, monthlong plunge from the July 17 record of 9,337.97.

Broad-market indicators also extended a rally that took hold Monday afternoon as President Clinton began his long-awaited testimony in the Monica Lewinsky case.
