Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Christmas holiday break Quiet week on markets r The Herald By GORDON LEGGE The Canadian Press Taking a break for the Christmas holiday, Canadian stock markets were quiet this week with most issues clos- ing generally higher Prices came under considerable pressure at the beginning of the week as investors scrambled against a Dec 24 deadline to sell their losing stocks for tax purposes With stock prices taking a substan- tial drop during the year, more than the usual number of investors were un- loading their stocks so they could de- duct the losses from their income tax Generally investors put off selling until the last moment The market rallied slightly just before closing at noon Tuesday pushing prices up Analysts attributed the change of direction to the influence of the New York market where prices moved upwards. The trend continued Fnddy when the market reopened after closing for Christmas and Boxing Day But most observers consider the ral- ly merely a technical one Tax-loss selling forced prices below their nor- mal levels and speculators moved in Friday to pick up son.d cheap issues Some analysts also said investors were moving out of the market in an- ticipation of lower company profits as the economy slows down next year The Toronto industrial index closed the week at 154 94, up 154 23 last week At Montreal, the industrial index was down 0 49 to 154 68, while the com- posite index down 0 60 to 153 25 At New York, the Dow Jones in- dustrial average rose 3 67 to 602 15 PICTURE BUTTE AUCTION MARKn Ideally located In centre of Urge emit feeding and hog raking country.
