COMMENTARY Strong demand for Treasuries shored up the bond market, and long-terminterest rates eased, heading back down toward 7%. That helped the blue-chipstocks regain some lost ground. Even with June 26's drop of 37 points in theDow, the average finished in the plus column for the week. But theover-the-counter market continued to sell off, especially tech issues. TheNasdaq Composite Index dropped another 2.2%. Since hitting its high three weeksago, the Nasdaq index has lost 7.7% of its value.MARKET ANALYSIS
