Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28-THE LETHBRIDGE Rampant inflation still plagues stock By WENDY ROSEN The Canadian Press Major Canadian stock markets may have spcn light at the snd of the tunnel this week as prices in most groups moved higher in moderate trading Analysts say signs are growing that short-term interest rates are easing both in Canada and the United States Interest rates as reflected in yields on government securities have turned downward but one Bank of Canada spokesman says it's too soon to tell whether it's a trend The decline, he says is in reaction to similar action in the US Observers caution that rampant inflation and the economy must be dealt with before any real confidence returns to the marketplace. The recent advances could be just a typical rebound in a severely depressed market. At Toronto, the industrial index rose 10.84 points on the week to close at Gold prices LONDON (AP) Friday's closing gold prices in U S dollars an ounce- London 146.75 Pans 151 22 Frankfurt 148.00 Zurich 148 50 Hong Kong 144 35 Beirut 4.778 a kilo. Dollar value MONTREAL (CP) U.S. dollar in terms of Canadian funds Friday was up 1-25 at 98 33-50 Pound sterling was up 19-100 at S2 28 9-20 In New York, the Canadian dollar was down 1-20 at S1.01 7-20. Pound sterling was unchanged at 31 11-20 163.99. But the index has fallen almost 22 points in the last six weeks and almost 64 points from its 1974 high. The Montreal industrial index rose 9 25 points to close Friday at 173 13 while the composite index advanced 9 90 points to close ac 167.46 American observers say lower short- term interest rates, stimulated by the Federal Reserve's announcement that credit restrictions were being eased, are sparking hope that the prime interest rate may soon be cut. DOW JONES HIGHER The Dow Jones average of 30 in- dustrials posted its first gain in seven weeks as it jumped 43.55 points on the week to close Friday at 670.74. But the average has lost more than 114 points in seven weeks and almost 213 points from its 1974 high Gold mining shares, which suffered tremendous losses last week after one U S. analyst recommended investors cash in their gold holdings and later changed his mind, continued their downward slide. Sharply lower bullion prices on the European markets contributed to this week's loss At Toronto, the gold index slipped 31.66 points on the week to close Friday at 328 22. The index has fallen more than 289 points from its 1974 high Resource industry stocks were sharply higher this week responding to analysts' predictions of a bright future tor this group. Higher prices, they say, will more than offset probable tax and royalty increases. The Toronto base metal index gained 4.09 points on the week to close Friday at 6680 while the western oil index closed at 141.19, up points.
