COMMENTARY

The market wrapped up the week in a slump in response to Fed Chairman

Greenspan's remark concerning the rise in investors' margin debt. Investors

also reacted to fears that the Fed will raise rates. Another downer: Qualcomm,

along with other tech stocks, issued earnings warnings. The Dow Jones

Industrial Average lost 4% for the week, while the Nasdaq Composite shed 2%.
