TSX sector performance for the past 6 days

Energy sector leading the pack

TSX sector performance over the last 6 days.  Energy sector leading the pack.

Reference the last sector performance for the Canadian market based on the ytd numbers. If I use the word “oversold” for energy then this is the reason for the year-end pop. But oil is still searching for a bottom and the smaller players will not participate in this rally. That advance will have to wait for more clarity on the direction for oil as WTI attempts to hold $55 and Brent attempts to hold $60.

Gold 3-Year Weekly Chart

Major trend is down. Intermediate trend is down. Near-term trend is down. With inflation absent in major economies, it would take a significant geopolitical event to boost the price of gold.

Opec leader vows not to cut oil output even if price hits $20……………

In the MEES interview, Mr Naimi said Saudi Arabia and other Gulf oil producers would be able to withstand a long period of low crude prices, largely because their production costs were so low — at only about $4-$5 a barrel.
