Market View

Major North American indices slid this week over concerns of a spike in COVID-19 cases. On-again, off-again stimulus talks and upcoming election are recurring themes in the market. Gold slumped while US dollar eased. The Canadian dollar was 75.71. U.S. S&P500 ended the week flat, while the TSX ended the week down 0.6%.

All but one sector rose this week. Industrials gained 1.9% this week, while healthcare and energy declined by 4.2% and 3.1%, respectively. Financials slid by 2.0%. The most heavily traded shares by volume were VIVO Cannabis, Suncor Energy, and Nevada Copper
