TOP STORIES:

SHUTDOWN-ECONOMY

WASHINGTON â¿¿ The budget agreement Congress reached Wednesday cheered investors and removed the threat of a catastrophic debt default that could have triggered another recession. Yet the temporary nature of the deal means a cloud will remain over a sluggish U.S. economy that was further slowed by the government's partial shutdown. By Christopher S. Rugaber and Ken Sweet.

WALL STREET

NEW YORK â¿¿ Wall Street finally got the deal it's been waiting for. A last-minute agreement to keep the U.S. from defaulting on its debt and reopen the government sent the stock market soaring, pushing the Standard & Poor's 500 index close to a record high. By Steve Rothwell. SENT: 980 words, photo.

Also:

â¿¿BUDGET BATTLE-GLANCE â¿¿ Provisions of bill for reopening the government and averting default.

GM-PICKUP TRUCK PRICES

DETROIT â¿¿ Locked in a fight for supremacy in the red-hot pickup market, it may seem strange that General Motors is raising prices on the Silverado, Sierra and other trucks. Analysts say it's actually a common marketing ploy in the industry. An automaker increases prices and then boosts discounts to give customers the feeling that they're getting a deal. By Tom Krisher.
