China, oil weigh on markets
Wall Street reopened on Tuesday, but U.S. stocks sank, partially due to China’s government initiating weaker-than-expected measures to stimulate its economy. China’s post-Covid recovery has disappointed North American markets this year. On Tuesday, consumer discretionary was a rare bright spot as selling hit across the board. The S&P closed -0.47%, the Nasdaq -0.16%, and the Dow -0.72%.
Another weak day for crude oil pushed the TSX down by 0.73%. WTI slid 1.75% to $70.50. Sectors were mixed with staples leading, but materials and energy lagging. Regulators ordered the big banks to add a bigger buffer to cushion any future bad loans, which pressured financials. Notably, CIBC fell 2.09%, both Suncor and Baytex sank nearly 3% while Celestica advanced 2.09%.
