Following Canada’s Federal election on Monday, the S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) rose slightly before falling for the next two days. The index received a small lift on Thursday as investors moved from utilities and real estate to more cyclical sectors of the market like technology, consumer discretionary and industrials. On Friday, the index was treading water as losses in technology and energy outweighed gold price gains in the precious metals sector.
