Bicyclists traveling faster than 10 m.p.h. along the Huntington Beach bike path south of the pier felt the long arm of the law Wednesday. It was the first day for police to enforce a new ordinance restricting bicyclists to 5 m.p.h. when pedestrians are present and 10 m.p.h. when the path is empty, said city spokesman James Engle. After numerous collisions involving bicycles and pedestrians, the city enacted the ordinance to be on the "safe side," Engle said.

Blue chip stocks proved again Thursday that gravity still works, as they continued to give back some of their spectacular November gains. The Dow Jones industrials tumbled 98.81 points, or 1.5%, to 6,303.71--the biggest one-day percentage loss since the mid-July market pullback. The broader market suffered much less damage, however, and there was little net change in either the bond market or the currency market.

Stocks shot to record levels Friday, fueled by a fall in bond yields as investors bet that the budget impasse in Washington will not drag on much longer. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 54.92 points at 5,271.75, surpassing Wednesday's record high of 5,242.84. The Dow rose 87.07 points for the week. The Standard & Poor's composite and New York Stock Exchange composite indexes also finished with record highs. In the bond market, the yield on the benchmark 30-year Treasury fell to 6.

Is there still time to make money in the markets betting on a weaker economy? Probably, many Wall Streeters say. But most warn not to get carried away. The bond market has been rallying for two months, anticipating the slowdown that seemed to be hinted in last Friday's January employment report. Likewise, the stocks that benefit most in a slower economy--stable-growth issues such as household products makers--have already zoomed.

Having guided his stock mutual fund to a 40% gain so far this year--thanks to a heavy investment in red-hot technology stocks--Ron Elijah admits to feeling more than the usual pangs of worry. "I live in fear every day that it's going to be over," he says of the dramatic 1995 surge in tech issues. "But when we go back and check with the companies, we find that the demand [for computers and other tech equipment] is still there."

The Dow Jones industrial average, sparked by an early-morning spike in long-term Treasury bond yields, fell more than 100 points Monday. Investors were anxious about weak earnings and the collapse of budget negotiations in Washington, which diminished hopes of lower interest rates. The benchmark 30-year Treasury bond yield advanced to 6.20%, its highest since Nov. 28. The yield was 6.09% on Friday and had been flirting with as low as 6% earlier this month.

Sometimes it doesn't matter what Wall Street knows--it just matters what Wall Street wants to believe. And what stock and bond markets fervently want to believe right now is that the U.S. economy is slowing and that interest rates have peaked. Any evidence to the contrary need not bother to compete for investors' attention. That became obvious last Friday when, in a surprise, the government reported that the nation's unemployment rate actually rose in January, to 5.7% from 5.4% in December.

The U.S. stock market is about to face its toughest challenge yet this year: clear evidence of a slowdown in corporate earnings growth. As major companies begin to report third-quarter results this week, fear is rising that disappointing earnings will be the trigger for a broad market selloff. Indeed, with most investors sitting on significant paper gains in stocks, earnings reports may provide as good an excuse as any to take some money off the table.
