The stock has handed back the gains it recorded yesterday.
The post Why is the Novonix share price plunging 6% on Wednesday? appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
The Novonix Ltd (ASX: NVX) share price is sliding lower on Wednesday despite no news from the battery technology company.
However, the broader S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) is also suffering, sliding 1.9% so far today.
At the time of writing, the Novonix share price is $2.29, 6.15% lower than its previous close.
Letâs take a closer look at what might be going on with the ASX 200 battery materials and tech stock today.
Novonix share price plummeting 6%
The Novonix share price is dumping yesterdayâs 4% gain, sinking more than 6% lower on Wednesday.
That leaves the stock 8% lower than it was at the end of last week and a whopping 44% lower than it ended May.
Interestingly, thereâs been no price-sensitive news out of the ASX 200 share since late last month when it announced a notable change to its board.
Also interesting is the performance of ASX technology stocks today. The ASX 200 tech sector and S&P/ASX All Technology IndexÂ (ASX: XTX) are both tumbling despite a strong performance from the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite overnight.
The US-based index gained 2.51% in Tuesdayâs session overseas and the tech sector generally performs relatively in line with its performance.
The Novonix share price is joined by that of its ASX 200 peer Life360 Inc (ASX: 360). They’re both down around 6% right now.
Itâs not all doom and gloom, however. ASX 200 tech share Iress Ltd (ASX: IRE) is recording a 3.45% gain today.
Todayâs dip is just the latest faced by the Novonix share price this year.
Itâs currently down 75% year to date. Though, it has gained 8% since this time last year.
