Page 8 Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard, Tuesday, February 27, 1973 Market I Reverses Decline 1 NEW YORK (AP) - Stock market prices reversed a weeklong string of declines today, but analysts said the gain was a technical correction and predicted it would be temporary. The noon Dow-Jones average of 30 industrials was up 3.24 to 957.03. Advances barely nudged ahead of declines in moderate trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The broad-based NYSE index of some 1,400 common stocks was up .02 to 60.27 at noon. On the American Stock Exchange, prices were mixed in light trading, and the price-change index was up .03 to 24.88. The government announced that the composite index of leading economic indicators rose 1.2 per cent in January, high lighting current business expansion. But analysts worried the expansion might be proceeding too fast for comfort and forecast a skittish stock market until fears regarding government handling of the recovery were resolved. Gimbel Brothers, up 1% to 23%, was the most-active issue on the Big Board. American Telephone, which has unveiled proposed new rates for some interstate users, was up % to 50%. McDonald's Corp., which plummeted Monday after an unfavorable research report on the fast-food business, dropped 1% more to 65%. 11 A.M. Quotes Courtesy of Edward D. Jones & Co. 11 N.

The board implemented new rules this session which eliminated certain type of trades in all commodities such as time orders, market-if-touched orders and contingent orders. This, to a degree, knocked out some public participation and most dealings after the opening were by local professional speculators, especially in the soybean complex. Soybeans had a range of 16 cents and soybean meal $5 a ton. Soy oil had a range of 110 points, wheat moved in a range of 8% cents and corn 2 cents. Old crop soybeans opened some 5 cents higher and new crop were down more than 7 cents. Minutes later all options were sharply lower, then a small rally set in. Heavy selling in oil and meal produced a limit loss in distant meal options early and a drop of some 60 points in oil from which there was some recovery. Selling in wheat on the opening was a carryover from the previous session when deferreds sank the limit of some 10 cents. The selling was linked to a government decision to rid itself of government-owned. After the selling had been satisfied, a rally set in and wheat prices moved sharply higher. Corn, oats and iced broilers were under selling pressure after mixed openings but trade was rather light.
