Within the five-day trading period, movement of markets set records at opposite ex- tremes. For example, at the Toronto Stock Exchange, the industrial index Monday posted its sharp- est plunge on record. In one of the nsost contrary moves ever seen by analysts, the exchange's index thrust sharply upwards Thursday, posting the largest single-day gain in history. The analysts noted that ear- Ser demonstrations of strength [his year had petered out witEin wo days. This appeared to be the case Friday, when a general weaken- ng was trading. noticed in morning However, the upward thrust resumed Friday afternoon am markets closed with a stnng gain. The three-day rally was the longest and largest sustainec upward movement in 1970. Observers said the weakening Friday was caused by profit- taking, or the sale of shares for short-term gains made during the rally period. This activity has been the downfall of any previous rallies this year. There were some distinct dif- ferences between the most re- cent period of gain and the other abortive climbs. Most prior rallies began ei- ther late Thursday or Friday morning. They were caused by investors hoping to pick up at tergain prices stocks eroded by long period of decline. These rallies usually ended abruptly the following Monday morning. Analysts say there now is Livestock Lethbridge Livestock Sales Monday to Friday, 415 cattle; 23 calves; hogs; lambs.

INTEREST SHOWN Some brokers noticed that persons who had avoided mar- kets for most of the year were now showing interest. Volume picked up during the rally period. The number of shares traded Thursday was the largest since mid-January. This is a sharp contrast to other rallies when no significant change in volume was noted. Analysts are stall cautious about the permanence of the rally. Most agree that two or three more sessions of advance are necessary in order to determine the degree of confidence which prevails. One Toronto analyst said the trend appeared to indicate that markets are in the area of a new base. Statistically, on index at the Toronto Stock Exchange this week, industrials were up 2.84 to 154.21, western oils 7.60 to 130.70 and golds 9.54 to 143.66 Base metals were down .55 to 89.86.

On the Montreal and Cana- dian exchanges, the composite index was up 1.33 to 150.30 Combined volume was shares compared with last week. Gains outnumbered losses 125 to 87 with 64 issues unchanged.
