0 Comments| September 20, 2019

Once again, Canada's main stock index pushed higher into record territory, thanks to gains in the energy sector as the price of oil moved up on Friday. The TSX hit an intraday record of 16,947.23, within fingertips of the 17,000 mark for the first time. Energy shares continue to outperform other sectors as they track gains in oil prices. A new StatsCan report showed retail sales were up 0.4% on stronger sales of new cars at motor vehicle and parts dealers. The largest percentage gainer on the TSX was First Quantum Minerals, up 6.8% after Bloomberg reported the company is drawing takeover interest. The biggest decliner was Aurora Cannabis, down 3.5%.

The S&P/TSX Composite Index was up 41.34 points to 16,899.69, and the TSX Venture Exchange was up 6.23 points to 590.45.

The Canadian dollar traded for 75.32 cents US compared with an average of 75.42 cents US on Thursday.

Crude oil prices were up $0.25 to $58.44.

The price of gold was up $17.77 to $1,516.17.
