Market View

This week, the market's attention has mainly been on hopeful news about the pandemic and the cold war between the US and China. Oil rose while the US dollar slipped. Gold rushed to $1,900 overnight. The Canadian dollar was 74.57. U.S. S&P500 was down 0.1% this week and the TSX ended the week down 0.8%.

Materials rose 4.3% over this week helped by the US and Chinese consulate closures in opposite countries. Energy rose 1.3%. Healthcare slid 8.0%, and consumer discretionary slipped 1.8%. Suncor Energy posted a larger-than-expected quarterly loss due to a decline in oil prices. The most heavily traded shares by volume were St. Augustine Gold and Copper Limited, Northern Dynasty Minerals, and Yamana Gold
