In Zurich, the dollar hit a new low against the Swiss franc. The action came after President Ford and French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing agreed in Martini- que that governments could adopt gold prices ranging more than an ounce rather than the official rate of 142.22 an ounce in inter- government trading.

A rise in gold prices usually pushes the dollar down. The American currency slipped back as the metal rose. In London, gold soared at the opening to an ounce from Monday's hectic trading. Later profit takers forced the price down and it was set at an ounce at the morning fix- ing. The dollar dropped to 2.3325 to the pound in London, down from Monday's 2.3310. In early trading in Zurich, the dollar was quoted at 2.5888 Swiss francs, a fraction below the previous low of 2.59 francs Nov. 18. Gold jumped over- night to an ounce from still below the high of also registered Nov. 18. In Frankfurt, the dollar bought 2.4375 West German marks compared with 2.4525 marks Monday. The dollar lost almost three centimes against the French franc, falling to 4.5150 francs from Monday's 4.5425 francs. The pound sterling dropped to 6.0331 from 6.08533 at Mon- day's close while the French franc slipped to 0.5709 from 0.5720.
