Stockhouse @ the Bell: Another record high for S&P / TSX

Stockhouse Editorial
0 Comments| December 21, 2017


The energy and health care sectors gained ground as Canada's main stock index edged to a record high in Thursday trading. Canada’s inflation rate shot up to 2.1% last month (up from October's 1.4% increase) as we paid a lot more for gasoline (up 19.6%) compared with a year ago. Stocks closed broadly higher on Wall Street, erasing modest losses from a day earlier.
 
The S&P/TSX Composite Index jumped 22.96 points to 16,182.63, the TSX Venture Exchange lost 1.55 points to 804.14. 
 
The Canadian dollar added 0.0053, remaining at 78 cents.
 
Crude oil prices were up $0.13 to $58.22.
 
The price of gold was up $0.60 to $1266.84.
 
In U.S. markets; the Dow raised 55.64 points to 24,782.29, the S&P 500 added 5.32 points to 2,684.57, and the NASDAQ gained 4.40 points to 6,965.36.
 
In world markets; the Nikkei shed 25.59 points to 22,866.10, but the Hang Seng jumped 133.57 points to 29,367.06. The FTSE raised 79.58 points to 7,603.98 and the DAX gained 40.70 points to 13,109.74.
