Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, March 23, 1974 Chicago markets CHICAGO (AP) Silver futures led futures on United States commodity markets to higher levels this week. It marked the second straight week that silver-forged solidly ahead, this week gaining as much as 38 cents an ounce, following the previous week's 25 cents an ounce gain. Wheat and soybean meal futures were generally lower on the board of trade, but. oats, soybeans and soya oil were generally higher at week's end. Cattle and hog futures declined from to per hundredweight on the mercantile exchange, while pork bellies fell 220 points and shell eggs were down 235 points. The demand for so-called international commodity futures appeared to have been linked to rising gold prices, decline of the U.S. dollar and generally inflationary price moves for various necessities throughout the world, dealers said. Commodities on the mercantile exchange appeared to have been affected largely by heavier marketings of animals and a declining demand at the consumer level. Board of trade prices, dealers said, largely reflected availability of grains, the weather and export demand. At the close Friday on the board of trade, wheat futures were 12 to 26 cents lower. May 4.90; corn to higher. May oats lower to six higher. May 1.42 and soybeans unchanged to five higher. May 6.36. Soybean oil was 30 to 185 points higher.
