There wasn’t much “green” to be seen this St. Patrick’s Day for domestic stock markets. Canada’s main stock index fell on Friday, dragged down by losses in financial stocks as the world continues to grapple with the collapse of several banks over the last week. Gold continues to be the haven of choice for traders to keep their money safe.

US markets remain on alert after banks join forces to rescue First Republic after its shares crashed. The parent of Silicon Valley Bank, which was taken over by Californian regulators a week ago, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The Dow essentially erased its gains from the previous session.
