Market View

Record new daily coronavirus cases in the US kept the markets shaky this week. Earnings season and election volatility did not help the markets as indices headed for a second week of declines. The Canadian dollar was 75.15. U.S. S&P500 ended the week down 5.0%, while the TSX ended the week down 4.3% as well.

It was a week of turmoil, with energy sliding down 6.6%, and consumer discretionary by 6.1%. Technology fell 5.9%, and healthcare and telecommunications, both slipped 5.4%. Financials headed down 4.4%, and industrials stepped down 4.1%. The most heavily traded shares by volume were Bombardier Inc, HEXO Corp, and Suncor Energy.
