Gains in the industrials sector helped lift Canada's main stock index higher on Wednesday, while US stock markets also closed higher on positive news a partial trader deal could happen with China. European markets also ended the day in positive territory, despite the fact the  prospect of a last-minute Brexit agreement between the European Union and Britain seems as remote as ever.
