Markets stabilize after recent sell-off
Despite a fall in crude oil prices, markets on both sides of the border stabilized after recent selling driven by recessionary fears. The TSX was basically flat on Wednesday when the Bank of Canada increased its key interest rate by 50 basis points to 4.2%, as many expected. Sectors were mixed, though slightly more positive than negative, led by consumer discretionary and staples while energy lagged.
