The strain of deteriorating economic conditions and the failure of governments to contain the damage are raising fears that a new financial market meltdown may be unavoidable. The grim mood was evident worldwide as a cascade of selling in stocks and commodities was triggered by concerns that policymakers lack the firepower and political consensus to revive their faltering economies. The Federal Reserve's latest move to push interest rates lower failed to assuage investors, who appear to be giving in to anxieties about a double-dip recession.

Wall Street may have been walloped by super storm Sandy, but the stock market wasn't. Despite a two-day suspension of trading, the stock market closed out the storm-shortened week Friday roughly even with the previous week, easing concern that lingering damage from Sandy would weigh heavily on shares prices or the U.S. economy. With investors positioning their portfolios in advance of Tuesday's election, the Dow Jones industrial average slipped 139.46 points, or 1.1%, to 13,093.16.

3,000. That's the key number for the beleaguered Nasdaq composite index--and after another sharp drop Friday, it's getting perilously close to falling below that level. Ever since the technology-laden index began correcting hard in March, Nasdaq has managed to hold above 3,000. That has given some solace to Wall Street bulls, who hope the 3,000 mark can be a floor from which the index eventually rebounds. But though it stayed above that level Friday, closing at 3,028.

Agriculture officials declared victory Monday against a Mediterranean fruit fly infestation in the San Fernando Valley, lifting a 62-square-mile produce quarantine that had been in effect for more than 3 months. "Any time we can declare the eradication of a Medfly or any exotic pest, it's cause for celebration," said Los Angeles County Agricultural Commissioner E. Leon Spaugy. Six Medflies were found in the Valley in late July, but none have been found since.

America Online's strong quarterly earnings are a sign that the company's business is humming along. Too bad the same can't be said of its stock--or those of other leading Internet companies. Despite blistering revenue growth, shares of the big three Net firms--AOL, Yahoo and Amazon.com--have been mired in trading ranges since spring and lately are exhibiting troubling "technical" signs.

Even Apple Inc. needs a rest sometimes. The technology behemoth suffered its fifth-straight losing session Monday, the first time it has endured that fate since early October. On a bad day for tech stocks but a solid one for the rest of the market, Apple fell $25.10, or 4.2%, to $580.13. It's now down 8.8% from its record close above $636 a week ago. That contrasted with the Dow Jones industrial average, which rebounded from its worst week of the year. Paced by better-than-expected retail sales, the blue-chip index rose 71.82 points, or 0.6%, to 12,921.41.
