Crude oil and gold prices fell this week. The Canadian dollar was 78.74 cents USD. U.S. S&P500 ended the week down 1.4%, while the TSX also ended the week down 2.3%.


It was a week of mostly reds. Technology and healthcare gave up 7.1%, each, while materials slid 7.0%. Energy was down 2.9%, and financials ended the week down 0.5%. Consumer discretionary gained 0.9%. The most heavily traded shares by volume were Kinross Gold Corp, Athabasca Oil, and Royal Bank of Canada.
