Google finance is confused about the NASDAQ

Screenshots from a few minutes ago from Google finance and Yahoo finance.

Google appears to be wrong in several respects. Most notably the day chart shows a strong decline even though the NASDAQ was up several percent today. Also, the change from previous close is wrong.

I don't think I'm doing anything wrong - just went to and clicked on the NASDAQ index link there. If I'm not doing anything wrong, I'm a little surprised that Google - a world-class company - makes these kinds of mistakes. (I use the plural because I am fairly certain I've seen other data mistakes by them in the past.)
