Sales of American-made cars were up 6.4 per cent with General Motors and Ford both showing gains and Chrysler and American Motors declines.

The pound sterling, which had been backing off during the morning, immediately jumped four points in relation to the U.S. dollar, to $2.41845. The Bank of England's discount rate, which sets the level for all lending in Britain, is normally fixed by the government on Thursdays. It has stood at seven per cent since April. Britain's high rates have attracted a flood of speculative "hot money" from abroad which has swollen the Bank of England's reserves of foreign currency to their highest point in 20 years.
