Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE October Tlic Herald Business Chicago markets CHICAGO (AP) Farm commodity futures moved over a wide range on the Board of Trade Friday and closed on irregular price tones. Before prices had come under profit- taking, soybeans and soybean oil mov- ed to limits for one session for the third straight day. As profit-taking set in, all pits weakened. Dollar value MONTREAL (CP) U.S. dollar in terms pf Canadian funds closed Friday down 2-25 at 21-50. Pound sterling was. up 11-20 at 19-20. In New York, the Canadian dollar was up 9-100 at 61-100. Pound Sterling was down at 13-20. Feed prices WINNIPEG (CP) Wheat Board domestic feed grain prices Friday: 3 CW red spring wheat No. 1 feed oats 2.20; No. i feed barley 3.16. The early demand in the soybean complex was largely a continuation of the buying this week, based on freezing temperatures reported over portions of the Middle West. Soybean and corn crops were of particular concern. Sellers were scarce in the soybean complex but as profit taking took over, the trade became mixed. Prices then fell back sharply in the wheat pit, and in corn and oats. Nearby wheat closed on a strong tone.' A report that Russia had revised grain production upward this year was also a selling factor. There was some talk that the U.S. government might enact export controls if there is any possibility of grain shortages. At the close, soybeans were 12 cents a bushel lower to 20 higher, Nov. 9.50; Chicago wheat 6 lower to 13 higher, Dec. 5.23; Gulf hard red wheat not traded; corn 7Vi lower to 1 higher, Dec. 3.93 and oats Vt to 2 lower, Dec. 1.99.
