COMMENTARY

Heading into the Thanksgiving holiday, the stock market investors were in a

foul mood. In just four days, the Dow Jones industrials plunged 167 points, or

4.3%. Half the loss came in the final hour of trading on Nov. 22. The damage in

the broad market wasn't quite as bad--the Russell 3000 index lost 3.4%. Don't

blame it entirely on the bond market, which remained fairly calm all week.

Pundits blamed the sell-off on everything from computer-driven trading to

worries that the GATT trade pact might fail to win Senate approval.
