Market View

After some disappointing results from south of the border, major North American indices slipped this week. The Chinese lockdown continues to weigh on corporate earnings. Gold prices jumped slightly, while the US dollar retracted from recent highs. The Canadian dollar was 78.06 cents USD. U.S. S&P500 ended the week down 1.5%, while the TSX also ended the week down 0.3%.


It was a mixed bag of sector returns this week. Energy gained nearly 9.7%, followed by small positive returns (less than 1%) for the consumer staples, materials, and consumer discretionary sectors. Healthcare declined by 2.8%, while financials slid by 1.1%. Technology ended the week down 0.6%. The most heavily traded shares by volume were Baytex Energy, Suncor Energy, and Cenovus Energy.
