The Canadian dollar was 79.52 cents USD. U.S. S&P500 ended the week up 0.9%, while the TSX also ended the week down 0.1%.

Energy, the only green this week, rose 0.9%. Technology ended the week down 0.9%. The most heavily traded shares by volume were Athabasca Oil Corp, Baytex Energy, and Tamarack Valley Energy.
