Stock rally fails to cover budget By SANDRA INGALSBE The Canadian Press A rally on Canadian stock markets late this week failed to recover the sharp losses that followed Monday's federal budget. Trading remained light. Both Toronto and Montreal markets Tuesday touched lows since 1972 as a result of budget proposals to increase taxes on a wide range of corporations. Particularly hard hit were shares of petroleum and mining companies which had been falling recently due to announced in several provincial budgets. Major indicators rose sharply Thursday following defeat of the Liberal government and reports that most budget measures would have to be suspended. On the the Toronto base metal index was off 2.71 to 88.37 and the western oil index 12.97 to 209.78. Toronto's industrial widely- based indicator of market closed ut 196.45. down 3.04. and the Montreal composite index at 201.92. down 5.67. Analysts say that while markets rallied on defeat of tne weakness will likely continue until political uncertainly is clarified by the July election. They recommend a cautious investment particularly toward oil stocks. Other unsettling influences are inflation and rising interest rates. Several Canadian chartered banks increased their prime lending rates this week to 11 per cent from In the United some major banks increased their rates to an unprecedented. ll'j per cent. MARKETS LOWER Markets on both sides of the border have been heading downward since interest rate increases began in March. The spreading increases in the U.S. Friday caused weakness in the New York moderating some strong midweek gains. The Dow Jones av- erage of 30 industrial ended the week at 850.43. up 4.53. The Toronto gold index had wide swings this losing almost 57 points during the first lliree days. It rose about 39 points Thursday in response to a sharp rise in bullion price following a report that the U.S. treasury secretary may favor allowing U.S. citizens to buy gold. The gold index closed at 470.44. down 20.25. was light at Toronto this week with 8.52 million shares changing hands for a value of compared with 8.73 million and million last week. At Montreal. 3.83 million shares were traded for a value of million. Volume last week was 3.92 million and value million.
