EACH DAY on Wall Street, investors hang on the latest move in crude oil prices. Gasoline prices at the pump this summer did not march to record highs in lockstep with crude oil. Consumer price inflation remained benign. Yet daily trading in crude oil futures dominates the news. This year's advance in oil prices to record highs represents a fear factor in the global economy, not an inflationary imbalance in the supply and demand for energy. It's hard to guess when the fear factor will subside.

NEW YORK - Amid fresh reminders that companies are still struggling in a weak economy, investors took profits yesterday, locking in gains after the stock market's two-week rally. Among the big losers were companies that released disappointing earnings and acknowledged future challenges, and companies that were downgraded by brokerages. Analysts had expected a pullback after the Dow industrials and the Nasdaq composite index ended last week with triple-digit advances. "Actually, it is healthy if the market backs and fills, rather than going up like there is no tomorrow," said Dan Ascani, president and research director at Global Market Strategists in Gainesville, Ga. The Dow lost 47.62 to close at 10,532.
