Canada’s main stock index moved very little on Wednesday as gains in miners countered a plunge in energy stocks due to weaker crude prices.

The materials sector, including precious and base metals miners and fertilizer companies, added 1.4% as gold futures rose 1.1% to $1,830.50 an ounce.

The energy sector dropped 2.3% as crude prices fell on concerns around the increasing spread of the coronavirus Delta variant in top consuming countries.

Word on Wall Street

Stocks, Treasuries, and other major markets were mixed Wednesday on Wall St. after July 2021 data showed that U.S. jobs growth slowed but demand for services increased, all as U.S. Federal Reserve officials signaled a likely pullback in market support.

Meanwhile, a measure of U.S. services industry activity jumped to a record high in July, boosted by the shift in spending to services from goods, but businesses continued to pay higher prices for inputs because of supply constraints.
