It is time for some summer hijinks on Wall Street. So sit back and
enjoy the stock market rally that probably won't last very long.
Stock prices rose nicely for a while yesterday because . . . well,
just because. But by the end of the trading session, market indicators
were all showing a loss as investors grew increasingly nervous.
You'll see different explanations in today's papers for yesterday's
initial gains. For instance, one statistic coming out of Europe
suggested that the economy over there is suddenly looking better.
