Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Investors switch off paper-money stocks By SANDHA INGALSBE Canadian Press Staff Writer Investors took advantage of a gold lining in the cloud over stock markets this but several rally attempts in other sectors fizzrld guicitl.v Prices slumped across a broad continuing a trend set during the last lour weeks. The Toronto gold index rose almost 19 points Wednesday as the price of bullion jumped a record an ounce on the London Metals Exchange. Analysts attributed the rise to uncer- tainty over economic future of many countries as a result of Arab oil cutbacks. Worried investors rushed to switch from paper slocks and bonds into tangible com- modities. The index closed at an all-time high Wednesday of 329.57. surpassing the previous record of 327.00 July 6. Gains in the last two sessions pushed it to yet another high of 339.31. up 42.02 on the week.

The Toronto base metal index was off 5.61 to 93.79. RATES INCREASE The energy shortage persisted as the dominant influence and. by the end or the new tension in the Middle East and a return to higher interest rates by some U.S. banks plagued the market. The Dow Jones average of 30 in- dustrials fell 29.45 points its largest drop in 11 years. Toronto's in- dustrial considered the major gauge of market lost 5.47 the largest since 1970. On the the Toronto industrial index was off 8.95 to the Dow Jones average 31.76 to 822.24 and the Montreal and Canadian exchanges' composite index 8.27 to 222.02. The Toronto western oils index fell .17 to 267.87. While Canadian markets have declined in response to New losses have not been quite so severe. The Dow Jones average closed Fri- day at its lowest level since Nov. 26. 1971. and was down about 165 points since Oct. 26. generally regarded as the date the six-week fall rally ended. SHARP LOSS The Toronto industrial index was declined about 25 points during the same period to its lowest point this week since July 10. The index is still above its 1973 low of 201.47 recorded May 22. Analysts agree that the reaction of Wall Street to the continuing energy problem will be the main influence on Canadian markets but disagree on what course New York will take. While some observers say markets have over-reacted and should correct themselves others say there are still too many uncertainties and the possibility of a recession is real. Trading wasactive with 14.59 million shares changing hands at Toronto for a value of million compared with 13.10 million and million. THE STOCKMEN'S MARKET CANADIAN PINZGAUER ASSOC.

Perlich CHICAGO Principal com- modity futures were generally lower this week on major exchanges in the country in the wake of expanding energy problems. soybean meal and oats closed lower on the board of trade while soybean oil advanced but wheat and corn prices were uneven. cotton and cocoa futures advanced on New York but world coffee and orange juice futures fell back. Prices of pork beliy futures. live live cattle and shell eggs also were lower on the mercantile ex- change. The generally weak closing at week's end followed some rather ner- vous prices movements. After President Nixon had disclosed energy trade generally assumed that cut in diesel. propane or gasoline might effect drying of farm commodities or their movement to markets and in export. There followed some limit sellolfs but these were followed by limit ad- vances as the problems were set aside when the possibility of new and large export business with China loomed on the horizon. At week's end. the nervous market closed on an irregular tone. When trade had ended for the wheat was 3 lower to 10 higher. Dec. corn 12 lower to 5 higher. Dec. oats to Dec. 1.20 and soybeans 14 to 23 lower. Jan. 6.02. Soybean oil 70 to 330 points higher. Dec. and soybean meal 7.50 to 19.00 a ton lower. Dec. 181.00. Energy weakness in concern that consumers might rebel against prices appeared to work on commodities as all the major ones pushed lower in the week. Support appeared to be lacking at any level. Live hogs were down up to a and cattle up to while pork bellies were down some 300 points and shell eggs almost as much. silver and sugar prices generally reflected world-wide needs and concern about stockpiling. There also appeared to be some links to ris- ing gold prices. There was some sell- ing of sugar futures after the Soviet Union was reported to have sold sugar on the world market. Wool prices were irregular at week's end with little ap- parent foreign influence noted. Grain quotations Dec Mar May Jul Sep 3.95. Dec Mar May Jul Sep Dec Mar i. Dec Mar May Jul Sep i.26.
