HOQLE A COMPANY Members New York Stock Exchange The first day of each new week ahvnj-s nrlnps a. mixture of expectancy nnd uncertainty. Commitments arc not entered Into as freely as on ither days of the week nnd It seems hat second thoughts are given to nil nattors pertaining to tho market and uxl all business generally. I'rlocs of stocks and tho trend of tho mnrkol requontly on this day reverse themselves sometimes several times before definite trend In established. Today the volume hold up above the million share mark but during he earlier hours there were a num- jor of changes In the direction. Not changes for tho day wore not estnb- Ishcd until tho last half hour nnd iust before the close when selling had the bulk of tho weight nnd the averages with losses nil nround. At tho same tlmo there were many ndlvldual Issues nnd groups as well which performed very well market wise. Some In fact closed at the best irlces on tho present move. After :he close It was difficult to see where any Issues lost any amount of ground. Switching of funds from one group to another and from Issue to Issue seems !o form a great amount of tho day's Business. Currently nnd for the longer pull Well tho heavier Industrial Issues are well regarded. From a pcrcont- ifr« standpoint It IN thoso Issues which will probably turn In tho best results during the next 12-month period. The oil Issues hnve recently been soft nnd disappointing but during the last week prices of indlvdual stocks seem to have stabl'.zed and levelled off. L. A.
