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.
