Thursday's volume: No contracts. Buoyant profit boosts market Buoyant corporate profits and renewed interest in Canadian shares by American investors sent markets sharply higher this week. Canadian markets virtually ignored the dull trend at New York, concentrating instead on the good news of much-improved fourth-quarter earnings and dividend increases of Canadian companies. 1. An added lift came Wednesday when the U.S. government removed its interest equalization tax on foreign in- vestment, reducing the cost of shares of Canadian companies for U.S. buyers. The Toronto industrial index, considered the main indicator of market trend, gained the first four days of the week but was weakened by profit taking Friday. The index closed at 214.42, up 3.84. The Montreal composite index rose 3.22 to 224.28. In contrast, the New York market gained only Wednesday as hopes of an early end' to the Middle East oil embargo were not realized. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials closed the week at 843.94, off 15.45. Analysts said worries over an economic slowdown this year were reinforced by a U.S. administration report Friday predicting sluggish growth, higher unemployment and a higher rate of inflation. The gold index in Toronto was off 37.20 to 517.97 as the price of bullion dropped back from last week's hijhs. One analyst said gold stocks have run ahead of bullion prices in the last few weeks and some profit taking was to be expected. Other resource-related issues were stronger. The western oil index gained 4.12 to 270.48 and base metals to 105.56, Although oil stocks have been sluggish recently as a result of "uncertainties surrounding the outcome of federal and provincial government discussions' on energy and taxation policies, some analysts say they will flourish this year.

This, plus increased American investor interest resulting from removal of the interest equalization tax, "should provide a healthy environment for Canadian oil stocks over the next few years."

The Herald Chicago markets CHICAGO (AP) Commodity Jutures prices moved over a fairly narrow range on major United States exchanges this week and most closed irregular. Corn, oats and.soybean oil futures were mostly higher on the board of trade, but wheat and soybeans were irregular while meal was lower. .Live hog. and cattle futures, pork bellies and shell eggs- on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange closed generally irregular. Concern over the truckers" strike produced lighter marketings of cattle and hogs at major stockyards and some reluctance on the part of wholesalers to buy. This was a bearish factor on futures, although there was some buyer interest in deferred options. Pork bellies generally moved .with hog futures, but shell eggs reacted to reports that stocks might increase.
