Some were tricked, others were treated, as the Halloween horses headed down Wall Street carrying mixed bags. OTC tore a hole is his goody sack and lost $116, but he's still leading the pack. Lipper Mutual made a pretty good haul, stashing $11 to stay in second. Blue Chip, dressed as a bear, didn't scare anyone with his $3 gain. On the other hand, Lipper International put a fright into a lot of folks when he dropped $180. However, he still has a firm hold on fourth. A black cat spooked 30-Year T-Bond, as he took a $12 dive. The saver steeds took off their masks and went bobbing for apples, with each coming up a winner. EE Bonds, Money Market and 90-Day CD posted gains of $11, $10 and $8, to hold sixth, seventh and eighth places, respectively. Costumed as a witch, Silver cast a $50 spell which made investors smile. Gold, the scariest horse of them all, headed toward the graveyard to play some Halloween tricks, but ended up getting buried with a $107 loss.
