Market View

It was a week of mixed emotions. US weekly jobless claims dropped below 1 million. China hopes the US cooperates to implement Phase-1 of the trade deal. US companies worried about a WeChat ban. The International Energy Agency (IEA) cut its 2020 oil demand forecast, due to reduced air travel lowering global oil demand this year by 8.1 million barrels per day. The Canadian dollar was 75.52. U.S. S&P500 was up 0.6% this week and the TSX ended the week down 0.4%.

In a surprising turn of events, technology stocks fell the deepest by 6.5%, followed by healthcare at 3.2%. Energy rose by 5.3%, and financials by 4.1%. The most heavily traded shares by volume were Zenabis Global, D-Box Technologies, and Enbridge Inc.
