Analysts say the election will be c. dominating influence on Canadian markets for at least the next week. A strong showing by one of the major parties could trigger a they at least for the short term. The market rebounded Thursday and Friday but did not recover all the losses suffered earlier in the week. At the industrial index fell .48 to close the week at 182.91. The index rose Thursday for the first time in six sessions and the Wednesday close was the lowest since Dec. 1971. CONCERN ABOUT RATES High interest rates are also causing investors concern. While no bank has yet followed Bank of Montreal's lead in raising the prime lending rate to a record 11'-4 per analysts say pressure may be building for another general increase. In the United the upward trend of interest rates has continued. Several major banks raised their prime rate to a record 12 per cent and analysts say further increases are pos- sible. At New the Dow Jones average of 30 industrials fell 10.63 on the week to close Friday at 791.77. a low since Dec. Friday's volume was the lowest since Oct. 1971. The Montreal industrial index rose .53 to 195.61 but the composite index fell .07 to 184.89. Trading was light at 2.31 million shares worth million compared with 3.29 million shares and S20.64 million a week earlier. At the base metal index closed Friday at down 1.17 on tile week. Base metals Wednesday touched a low since Dec. 1971. OILS DRIFT LOWER The western oil index rose 5.19 to close Friday at 183.79. Oil shares Wednesday recorded a low since Sept. 3. 1970. Gold share prices continue to reacting to declines on the European gold markets. The Toronto gold index lost 10.62 on the week to close at 409.19. Trading during the four-day week was light with 5.SI million shares worth S44 75 million compared with 7.22 million shares and 564.07 million the previous week. Thursday's volume was the lowest since Jan. 1972. Analysts say a key to the recovery in stock prices over the long term in Canada is a turnaround in interest rates and a cooling of inflation. A sus- tainable rise in stock they is unlikely until there is clarification of government policies towards business.

Chicago CHICAGO Farm commodity futures generally improved In price during the July 4 holiday abbreviated week that ended but silver futures fell back posting a loss of up to 57 cents an ounce for the four days. The decline in silver futures marked the fourth straight week the price of this commodity has been easing. The total loss in silver futures amounted to an ounce. Its fall has been generally in line with the decline of gold prices on the world's leading markets. For the Chicago wheat gained 18 to 25 cents a July Gulf hard red wheat did not trade all corn 14 to 18'A July oats 6 to -9V2 July and soybeans 34 V2 to 54 July 6.22. Soybean oil 185 to 335 points higher. July and soybean meal to a ton July 111.50. Cattle and hog futures increased to a hundredweight on the mer- cantile and pork bellies gained some 300 points while shell eggs were up as much as 320 points. The sharp increase in soybeans futures followed a decision by Brazil to hold back export licences involving soybeans and products. This might make United States soybeans more attractive to European countries. Gains in soy oil and meal generally followed the moves in soybeans. The weather and very light move- ment of the new winter wheat old corn and oats into commercial channels were factors in the demand for these futures. Light marketings by producers was a major factor in the strength of live cat- tle and live hog futures. Prices at the consumer level were beginning to reflect the futures demand. Pork bellies and shell eggs also improved on light movements of products to markets. The price of gold fell to its lowest in about five months on European money markets and silver futures again reflected this weakness. The day-to- day price movements were not always in line with gold however. cocoa and wool prices also showed some weakness after four trading but world coffee and orange juice futures posted small gains.
