BOOM TRADERS WHO WERE BULLISH
IN MORNING TURNED TO SELLING SIDE
Some Issues Were Bid Up Without Regard to Diplomatic
Situation Pool Activities at Intervals in Many
Low-Priced Industrials
NHW YOItK, Kcb. 8.
'Tho room traders who liml been the clilef bull") In the market tluriiiB the
first hnlf of the ttiiy lost confidence In their position lifter noon and turned to
the HClllnK'nlde. Slight concessions resulting In the standard Issues from these
sates wcro In themselves without Importance, but while the selling was In
progress rumors were circulated about the Washington enbtnet meeting and
eomo of the traders expressed disappointment that no announcement had been
As n matter of fact, those Informed about current diplomat? discussions did
not expect that any statement would be made ntter the meeting, but any excuse
was good enough for the room traders to take as a reason for offerings of stocks.
Some Issues, Including Allls-Chalincis, wcro bid up without regard to the dlplo
mnllcNiUuatlon or market position, and there were pool activities at Intervals In
many other of the low-priced Industrials, but taken altogther, the market was
one In which outside Interest was absent to a greater degree than at any tlmo
slnco the beginning of the year, nnd the variations In quotations were without
Significance.
For more lmportanco was attached in banking circles to developments In
foreign exchange. The steps tnken by the German Government to stabilise
exchange by deposits of gold In Holland were reflected In a brisk demond and
sharp advance In IJerlln exchnngr, rclchsmarks advancing from 7 Pi to 76', 4.
A short tlmo ago sold nB low as 71!'i.
Copper Sales Reported at 2D Cents
Sharp advances In the standard market In London caused considerable
excitement In the copper metal market here. Some leading pioducers nnd
dealers did not make quotations to the hucrs, while others held June
deliveries at 27 cents a pound. IJuycrs came Into the market In droves nnd the
prices of the arious sales that were made were based on the quantities In
volved, the deliveries wnnted and the position of the customer.
For nearer deliveries many levels nre being talked of nnd a sale of u small
nmount of March copper Is reported to have been made at 29 cents.
