The sector equity category is a bit of an oddball, but a high-performance oddball.

The major U.S. and Canadian stock indices posted strong weekly gains, despite softer U.S. inflation and retail sales reports. Both gold and crude oil also rose on the week, as the U.S. dollar faded on soft inflation and retail sales data. Toronto’s benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index advanced 1.0% on the week, fueled by a 5.1% weekly gain in the price of crude oil, a 1.3% rise in the price of gold. The Canadian dollar continued to climb against the U.S. dollar, closing the week at US$0.7905, as the Bank of Canada hiked its policy rate to 0.75%. The blue-chip U.S. benchmark S&P 500 Composite Index climbed 1.4% on the week, closing at a record high on Friday, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed just shy of its record, gaining 2.6% on the week.
