By WENDY ROSEN The CANADIAN Press Hope for an upward trend, which permeated major Canadian stock markets last week, diminished this week as prices drifted lower in light trading. A move by several United States banks to cut their prime interest rates in response to a relaxed monetary policy and falling short-term interest rates failed to spark prolonged ad- vances on either U.S. or Canadian markets Observers say this indicates that inflation and the stability of the economy are problems that must be dealt with before any significant rally can occur. They also note that a con- tinued slump has the effect of pushing prospective investors further away from the marketplace.

Bullion prices on the European metal market fluctuated slightly this week and stimulated a moderate ad- vance in gold mining shares.

Silver futures, under a broad de- mand from mixed sources, advanced up to 27 cents an ounce, while copper gained 100 points, cocoa 300 points and coffee about 500 points.
