Markets Buck Wall Street lly AIIT JOHNSON Canadian I'rcss Staff Writer Canadian stock markets moved upward this week, de- spile an absence of optimistic news or economic devclop- menls. The Toronto Slock Exchange's imlustri.il index, the broadest indicator of share prices, was up .80 to 163.06 at the end of the five-day trading period. On the Montreal and Cana- dian exchanges, the composilc index was up .87 lo 161.G2. Performance on Canada mar- kets contrasted with price activ- ity on Wall Strecl. At the New York Stock Exchange, the Dow- Jones industrial average of key rail and transportation issues dropped 2.35 points lo 758.49. Main reason for Lhe weakness on Wall Slreet, analysis said, ivas the United Auto Workers' strike against General Motors Corp. which acted as a catalyst lo bring together other negative factors influencing prices. The New York Slock Ex- change suffered ils greatesl losses during Ihe firsl two Irad- ing sessions ol tire week. The las'l Ihree days were spent in a partial recovery exercise which surprised analysis because ol the seeming absence of any bul- lish news. Canadian markets moved higher on three of the live trad- ing sessions. Observers suggested thai do- mestic stock prices were not af- fected by as many of the nega- tive influences which plagued Wall Streel. In addition, oil index adv- anced 5.04 points to 183.73. The index was unchanged at the end of four days of trading but made a sharp advance of more than five points on Friday Biggest movers during the week included the three maior Perlich Livestock SACRED COWS British archeologist Walter Emery has uncovered the mum- mies of 68 sacred cows wor- shipped by the pharaohs centu- ries ago.
