COMMENTARYThe stock market gave a big thumbs-up to a second term for President Clintonand a Republican-controlled Congress. Both the Dow Jones industrial average andthe Standard & Poor's 500-stock index rallied more than 3% to reach new highs.The Dow is now up almost 21% for the year. Anticipation of continued economicgrowth, low inflation, and more deficit-cutting fueled the stock market's rise.After rallying, bond prices took a hit on light buying of the Treasury'soffering of 10-year notes.MARKET ANALYSIS
