5 Top Weekly TSX Performers: Aya Gold and Silver Up on Drill Results

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,599.29 early last Friday (July 29) morning, and ultimately closed out the five day period higher at 19,692.98.

The index continued its upward trend and was on track for a monthly gain, its first in three months, on the back of better commodities prices and as data showed that the Canadian economy most likely grew above the Bank of Canada's forecast. Meanwhile, the American economy unexpectedly contracted in the second quarter, with investors expecting the US Federal Reserve to be slower to introduce rate hikes.

Looking over to commodities prices, gold rose last week on the back of a softer US dollar, trading above the US$1,750 per ounce mark again. Silver also jumped last week to trade above the US$20 per ounce level, while base metals prices increased on hopes of more infrastructure stimulus in China.
