NEW YORK stock market rallied strongly Thursday and piled up its biggest gain since May 29. Several buying waves surged :hrough the market as it bounced up from what brokers had hoped would be a strong support level. Since the May 29 partial recov- ery from the severe loss of the day market had not been able to mus- ter such vigor. The recent pattern has been for sharp advances to be whittled or wiped out before a trading session ended. Some brokers said there was heavy buying Thursday by insti- tutions, including mutual funds, pension funds, and insurance companies. This was mainly con- centrated in the better grade stocks. An estimated billion was vanced 20.37 to 557.35, also the largest jump in a month. Stand- ard Poor's 500-stock index was up 1.81 to 54.41.
