NEW YORK (API A third consecutive weekly decline in interest rates pushed the stock market into an early rally Friday, but profit-taking took over and the. day ended with moderate gains.

Canadian markets were closed Mon- day for the Thanksgiving Day holiday. Tuesday, an early gain was eroded by the influence of a decline on the New York market. Analysts said a correction following the recent surge, was to be ex- often take advantage of swift rises in share prices to cash in their profits.

States'being lowered and an easier money stanre being adopted, the climate for equity investment is improving. "Security price levels are beginning to indicate higher potential returns than alternative investment vehicles, as short-term The Toronto firm adds that when viewed in hindsight, this time "will. prove to have been one of the best buy- ing opportunities available" since before the Second World War.

Wheat and com futures closed, on mixed tones but soybeans were about 15 cents a bushel higher. Soybean oil was irregular at the close, but meal gained about a ton. Oats were up about one cent a bushel. The demand early in the session for farm commodity futures appeared to have been influenced by a statement attributed to Agriculture Secretary Butz that Russia probably will get the grain previously contracted for. and another statement that Russia would gel most favored nation status'which might involve the sale ol farm products. There was a flurry of buying linked to a belief that a pending report on feed cattle might be bullish on grains. This combination of factors helped keep the buying mood high through most of the session. Trade was generally mixed and the pace fairly ac- tive. Late in the session, corn and wheat came under fairly active profit-taking. sending prices lower in most options. The distant options in the two pits re- mained firm. At the close, soybeans were 3 to 16 cents a bushel higher. Nov. 8.50: Chicago wheat ,4 lower to 6 higher. Dec. 5.13: Gulf hard red wheat not traded: com unchanged to 4 lower.
