Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDOE Energy shortage troubles stocks By SANDRA INGAL5BE Caaattaa Prew Staff Writer Worries over a world-wide energy shortage continued to chill stock markets this week. A rally during the final two sessions moderated early but the trend was generally lower. The Toronto market's in- dustrial considered a major indicator of over-all fell 4.08 to 225.51. The index has lost about 12.5 points during the last three weeks since touching its all-time high of 237.99 on Oct. 29. On the Montreal and Cana- dian the composite index was off 4.79 to 234.83. The main influence on Cana- dian markets has been a broad decline at New York. Analysts say that while the fuel shortage in Canada is not as severe as in ''the United an energy-based reces- sion affecting its major trading partner would hurt the Canadian economy and stock prices. The New York market suf- fered a more severe reflected in the Dow Jones average of 30 industrials which fell 17.08 to 891.33 this week. At the close of Wednesday's the average had lost about 117 points during 13 erasing gains made in the rally begun in mid- September. Markets rallied strongly on Friday following President Nixon's suggestion that Arab nations might relax their em- bargos to Western Europe and Japan.

WOOO. 4S Analysts cautioned that the embargo relief would not directly benefit the U.S. and that a longer-term energy problem still remains. They added that technical rallies prompted by bargain- buying of depressed stocks can be expected but that changes of a sustained recovery are not good until some of the energy uncertain- ties are resolved. Gold stocks slumped badly following the announcement that major central banks have abandoned the two-tier gold .marketing freeing them to sell on the open market. That news produced a 21.5-point drop in the Toronto gold index on the largest in four years. Some observers said the sellers over-reacted since there is little likelihood the banks will choose to sen in the market in the near future and there still high industrial demand for the metal. INDEX PICKS UP The index strengthened late in the week but closed at off 14.07. Western oils generally followed the market trend and closed the week at off 4.27. Trading was active at To- ronto this week. Volume was copper prices on world metal markets. Despite late the index closed the week at down 3.48. Trading was active at Tronto this week. Volume was 15.47 million shares and value was compared with 13.71 million and million. On the Montreal and Cana- dian 5.46 million shares were traded compared with 4.77 million last week.
