Open High Low Close Apr 2.34N May 2.90 Nov 2.40A Livestock report The 1970 surplus in Canada's transactions with other countries in goods and services compared with a deficit of $751 million in 1969, and it was the first surplus chalked up since 1952. The bureau said that taking seasonal conditions into account, the surplus was particularly strong in the first and final quarters of the year, after a slump in the second and third three-month periods. While the United States continued to be the main investor in foreign-controlled enterprises in Canada, there was a sharp increase in investment from Western Europe, which more than doubled its 1969 volume, and accounted for about one fifth of 1970's total. The bureau gave this picture of Canada's international pay- ments position: Merchandise exports rose to $16,841 million from $14,874 million in 1969, and imports declined to $13,839 million from $14,014 million. This left a merchandise trade surplus in Canada's favor of $3,002 million last year, compared with one of $860 million in Lethbr'dge Livestock (Supplied by Canada . Department of Agriculture) .

Grain prices Winnipeg Grain WINNIPEG (CP) - A United States government report on crop estimates for the coming year apparently affected the market today at the open on the Winnipeg Grain Exchange. The report predicted a 26.6-per-cent drop in the U.S. flax crop next year and flax futures moved to higher price patterns on the Winnipeg exchange. Offers were light in all commodities. At the open flax was % to 1% higher, May 2.55*4, rapeseed Vancouver 1% higher in May at 2.94%; rapeseed Thunder Bay M higher in December at 2.61%B; oats 1% lower in May at 84 and rye one lower in May at 1.14%.

This cut the comm�dity trade balance to the net surplus of $1,297 million in Canada's balance of international payments for last year. The bureau earlier reported a preliminary balance - of - payments surplus of $1,279 million. Tuesday's report gave more definitive figures and greater detail on capital movements. There was an influx of $2,257 million in long-term capital into Canada in 1969, but this was cut last year to $814 million. Canada's outflow of short-term capital was only $581 million last year, compared with $1,441 million in 1969. DBS said a major factor in the decline was sharp cut-backs in the amount of new Canadian Southern Alberta Livestock Marketing OPEN 24 HOURS TO RECEIVE YOUR LIVESTOCK investments sold to non-residents. "With a gradual easing of monetary conditions in Canada, especially in the latter part of the year, and in response to official requests to limit their issues abroad, Canadian borrowers obtained a far greater proportion of their funded debt requirements domestically in 1970 than in 1969," the bureau said. The long stock market slide, uncertainty about tax law revision, growing public debate about foreign investment in Canada, and a narrowing of the spread between Canadian and foreign interest rates' also contributed to the sale of Canadian investments abroad. Foreign direct investment in Canadian enterprises grew narrowly to $760 million for the year, from $655 million in 1969. About 70 per cent of the foreign investment came from the United States, with the growing importance of European investment. About 35 per cent of the foreign investment went into Canadian manufacturing. There was a sharp increase in foreign investment in expanded pulp and paper manufacturing facilities1.
