James Edwards, Luther Gu - Stock Market in Nose-Dive on London Exchange LONDON, Feb. 6--UJJ-- The London stock market took a nose-dive today in the heaviest selling slump since July, 1947. The British market which had nervously watched the plunging American exchanges for two days went into a speculator decline of its own. Millions in pound sterling values were wiped out. All types of securities were affected by the wave of selling. The London decline was clearly in sympathy with the sharp downward trend of American markets. The London exchange yesterday · was only mildly affected with light selling in dull trading. Today, however, the dive picked "up momentum.
