The Clinton budget victory touched off a rally in the bond market that carried 
      over to stocks. The Dow industrials set new records once again, as did the 
      NASDAQ. But the Standard & Poor's 500 was unable to mount a sustained piercing 
      of the 450 level--the result of the drag of the big drug and consumer stocks on 
      that index. Stocks abroad also made new highs in anticipation of further 
      interest-rate cuts overseas. Gold broke sharply as rumors of Chinese selling 
      circulated in the market.
