These graphs provided by the TSX demonstrate the downward trend in Canadian markets as we slip into the summer doldrums. Market participation has also slowed which will lead to less volatility and any over all muted gains in stock prices. Few want to see this as we all trade stocks, however no one wanted to see anything with a negative tone just before the big 2007 crash. I am not suggesting this will happen just a correction on profit taking of the over market build. We should see a rebound in the Canadian markets again in the fall. To what extent is too soon to tell.
