Al Toronto, the industrial index end- ed al off 1.25. after gaining more lhan IB points since Christmas Eve. The index Monday toucl.cU a high since Aug. Western oils, which hud led the rally, dropped 5.30 to 134.57 this week and metals .82 to 61.10. Al Montreal, the industrial index fell Ml lo; and the index 1.20 to LKB.70. Analysts said declining interest rail's are continuing to be a positive influence on the market. Short-term rates, which tiave provided stiff com- petition for funds, have fallen rapidly. Major chartered banks this week lowered their prime rates to per cent from 11 per cent and several U.S. banks dropped their rates to Wi per cent, the first decline below 10 per cent in months. The prime rate, that charged to the bank's most credit-worthy customers, generally signals other lending rate changes. Lower rates may make it easier for corporations to finance spending plans, analysts say. The New York market fluctuated this week, dropping fairly sharply on Friday. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 14.16 to 644.63. Analysts said some buying was initiated by President Gerald Ford's proposed tax cuts but said there was still confusion about what final form the anti-recession, energy-saving measures would take. Gold shares were lower at Toronto this week, reflecting the decline in bullion prices. The gold index closed at 355.21. off 33.29. Volume at Toronto this week was 10.22 million shares compared with 11.15 million last week. Value was million compared with million. At Montreal, 2.62 million shares were traded for a value of million, compared with 2.58 million and million.

OTTAWA (CP) Sales of slaughter cattle and calves fell by more than 10 per cent at nine public stockyards this week after a dramatic increase last week, agriculture department figures showed Friday. Slaughter cattle and calf sales totall- ed 22.575 head, down from last week when sales hit 25.500, more than double the previous week's total, nor- mal after a Christmas slump: Feeder cattle and calf sales con- tinued to rise, up by 750 over last week to head. Sheep and lamb sales were up by 225 to Veal calf sales, because of limited demand, were steady throughout the week although prices did drop Low- grade heifer prices were steady despite an early drop in Calgary and low-grade cows, generally used for hamburger, declined in most centres between 50 cents and because of reduced demand. TORONTO There was uneven demand for top- grade steers, but early price sags of up to SI were regained by mid-week because of strong trading for the limited number available. Low-quality cows lost because of occasionally dull trading. Feeder prices declined with steers weighing more than 750 pounds losing S6 a hundredweight and steer calves between 401 and 575 pounds losing to Prices for good lambs declined by to 59 early in the week while top- quality hogs recovered from last week's price decline by gaining by the middle of the week and near the end. WEST Lasses of 50 cents to a hundredweight for top-quality steers were reported at some stockyards while low-grade heifer sales, under ac- tive trading, were generally steady throughout the week although there was an opening loss of S2 in Calgary, Alberta yards reported uneven prices for steers over 750 pounds and heifers over 550'pounds; early gains were offset by mid-week losses. Saskatoon continued to show steady prices for all classes while Edmonton reported a 51 decline for steer calves 401 to 575 pounds and other calves 401 to 550 pounds. Lamb prices at Edmonton increased by ?l.

Chicago markets CHICAGO (AP) Nearly all com- modity futures traded on the major United Stales exchanges declined this last week. Losses were heaviest among farm commodity futures. Metals futures, in- cluding gold, silver and copper, also fell. Several factors strongly influenced liquidation of futures. The gloomy out- look of the U.S. economy as portrayed by President Ford contributed to the selling effort. The Soviet Union decid- ed to scrap a trade agreement with the U.S. which was hoped to have set a pattern for greater exports of farm products. When trade ended for the week Friday, wheat futures were 2414 to 40'A cents a bushel lower, March 3.B4; corn was to 21Vi lower, March 3.20'A; oats were to 12 lower, March 1.55 and soybeans were down 65Va to 79'A cents. January 6.01. Soybean oil iost 265 to points, or nearly six cents a pound, January 29.75 and soybean meal declined 15.50 to 21.30, January 115 .50. Gold futures declined to on the U.S. exchanges. Daily price movements were generally geared to the price of gold at the cash Europe's principal markets. Trade was very light in futures, however. As grain futures moved lower, farm commodity futures on the Chicago mercantile exchange also fell. Pork bellies lost nearly 700 points, or about seven cents a pound, while live hog futures were down a hundredweight and live cattle futures lost nearly a hundredweight. Shell eggs also shared in the general li- quidation, falling 335 points. World sugar contracts gained about two cents a pound for the week, mov- ing alone into higher price ranges. De- mand improved during the week for these futures, but trade was not too heavy. Grain quotations Friday; Wheat: Mar 3.84; May Jul Sep 3.76; Dec 3.86.
