The Toronto Stock Exchange has ended its rally after oil prices took a downward turn again today on concerns over high US stock levels. Having reached above $54 yesterday the price of Brent crude reversed to around $48 taking energy stocks with it. Some analysts are convinced that oil has already been at the lowest it will reach but even so there is some way to go before prices are at a comfortable level for the oil firms.
