Bargain hunters have headed to the sales again today; not in stores but on the Toronto Stock Exchange where canny investors have been picking up shares weakened by the volatile oil price. The energy sector also had another reasonable day despite some oil dips and ended the day with another, albeit slim, rise. Most of the other sectors closed saw gains too.
The S&P TSX Composite Index closed up 132.87 (0.93 per cent)
The NYSE closed higher
Oil is trending up
Gold is trending up
The loonie is slightly down against the US dollar
