By SANDRA INGALSBE The Canadian Press Stock markets headed lower this week amid more worries about an economic recession. Those same worries, however, helped produce a strong surge in gold shares on the Toronto market. Prices opened the week higher and Canadian markets managed to hold their own Tuesday despite a decline at New York. Reports of higher third- quarter profits and some optimism that the forthcoming federal budget would be positive toward business and investment contributed to the gain, analysts said. But, trends at New York again prov- ed to be the biggest influence and Canadian markets slumped at mid- week. Included in the bad news were reports from the United States govern- ment of a slowing economy and increasing inflation. Statements by U.S. treasury secretary William Simon that the economy was in a recession added to investor fears, analysts said. On Friday, markets failed to sustain a recovery generated by news of a decline in prime rates of some U.S. banks to 11 per cent, the fourth reduc- tion in as many weeks from a record 12 per cent Analysts said high interest rates have been replaced by recession as a major market worry. Among major market indicators, the Toronto industrial index fell 2.49 to 163.35 this week, the Dow Jones avarage at New York 18.69 to 636.19 and the Montreal composite index 4.09 to 165.59. The decline in Canadian markets was the first in three weeks. They clos- ed slightly higher last week after one of the strongest rallies of the year dur- ing the second week in October. In sharp contrast to the rest of the market this week, gold shares at Toronto had spectacular gains. The gold index, which measures the perfor- mance of 11 stocks, rose 60.4 points Thursday, largest rise on record, in response to a jump in the bullion price on overseas markets. Economic uncertainty increases the attraction of holding gold, analysts said. Other factors included reports that U.S. authorities would not limit margin buying when Americans are permitted to buy gold, and strikes at several South African gold mines. The gold index closed the week at 441.41, up 86.12. The base metal index rose .94 to 66.57. Western oils fell 2.25 to 145.37.
