Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, OdoOcr ZO, LETHBRIDGE HERALD-27 TSE advance continues The Toronto stock market this week broke through the record levels of last Friday and extended its advance to five consecutive weeks. Trading was active. Montreal markets were lower. Toronto staged an early retreat from last week's record close but recovered during the final three sessions to more than offset the declines. Analysts blamed profit- taking for the initial sharp losses but added that the market was due for "a healthy consolidation" before another advance. The Toronto industrial index, considered the major indicator of market trends, touched an intra-day high of 234.15 Friday and closed the week at 233.83. up .27. On the Montreal and Canadian ex- changes, the composite index fell 1.09 to 289.04. Observers said reports of stronger third-quarter profits and dividend increases contributed to the upward movement. The New York market also suffered some profit-taking, triggered by concern over the conflict -in the Middle East and uncertainty about interest rate trends. 'Several American banks cut their prime bank rates Friday, spurring the market to a gain. But on the week, the Dow Jones average of 30 in- dustrials fell 14.89 to 963.73. Price increases by some producers and strong demand for metals were reflected in Loan rates cut in U.K. LONDON (AP) -TheBank of England cut its minimum lending rate today to per cent from 11 Vu per cent. The rate which indicates the base level of lending rates had stood at the all-time high level of 11 V-s per cent since July 27. A record jump of per cent was made then to halt what apparently was shaping up as a run on the pound. The aim was to raise British interest rates above those in Europe to attract investment funds. the Toronto base metal index which rose 1.26 to 110.32 a high since April. 1970. Golds were stronger as the Toronto market's index posted a gain of 11 points Wednesday. On the week, it rose 9.79 to 273.45. Oils, particularly those with reserves and exploration potential in the U.S. or abroad, attracted interest following a move by Arab oil- producing companies to cut production. The western oil index rose 7.33 and ended at 264.76. Many analysts remain op- timistic about the duration of the rally. Nesbitt Thompson and Co. Ltd. says in a recent technical review that the intermediate term objective of the Toronto industrial index is 255 and any short-term weakness will probably find support at the 210 to DuPont Glore Forgan Canada Ltd. comments: "The technical character of the market is as strong and as well-advanced as we have seen it since the spring of 1963. The rise in the averages continues to surprise everyone by ignoring, or shrugging off very quickly bad news and sundry uncertainties by performing persistently better than we might have prudently anticipated." Wood Gundy Ltd. says that once domestic investors provide the lead, a substantial flow of foreign investment into North American Stocks should be expected. "The U.S. markets have the greatest relative attraction, but our natural resource base. the interlisteds and the ob- vious values in many other basic stocks mean there will be a favorable impact on Canadian markets. Trading was active at Toronto this week with 15.74 million shares changing nands for a value of S188.08 million, against 13.51 million shares and million during the four sessions last week.

Write or Telephone IVIERA MOTOR HOTEL 5359 CALGARY TRAIL WASHINGTON (AP) In- creases in consumer prices in the United States slowed sharply in September, climb- ing just three-tenths of one per cent over-all, the labor department reported today. Food prices actually declin- ed during the month, by one- tenth of one per cent, the first decline since last December. One factor in the September price slowdown was that prices had increased at near- record levels in August after the lifting of the government's price freeze. The increase in August was 1.9 per cent for all items and 6.1 per cent for food. Another factor was that wholesale prices of many farm commodities such as soybeans and corn declined in September. The one-tenth of one per cent decline in food prices was reported on a seasonally ad- justed basis, meaning normal seasonal variations were taken into account. On an unadjusted basis, food prices were off seven-tenths of one per cent, the biggest monthly decline since Decem- ber 1971. But even with the September improvement, con- sumer prices still were 7.4 per cent above a year ago. For the June-to-September quarter alone, the increase was at a seasonally adjusted rate of 10.3 per cent. The labor department said the cost of food purchased in grocery stores declined 1.4 per cent in September. Prices for food away from home, especially in restaurants, increased 1.9 per cent. The consumer price index in September stood at 135.5 using the 1967 figure of 100 as the base. The labor department also reported that real spendable earnings of American workers, which is the take- home pay after taxes, rose by six-tenths of one per cent in September, but was still 2.3 per cent below a year ago. Weekly take-home pay of nonfarm workers, in terms of 1967 dollars, was listed as up from in August but down from a year earlier.
