COMMENTARY

On the first trading day of the millennium, Jan. 3, the Nasdaq rose 1.5%, to a

record 4131, led by tech shares. The S&P 500 and Dow both fell. But the next

day, the Nasdaq plunged 229 points, or 5.6%. The Dow fell 360 points, or 3.2%,

and the S&P 500 sank 56 points, or 3.8%. Tech shares led the route. Blame

interest-rate fears.
