Canada’s main stock index fell on Tuesday as commodity prices slipped. Industrials, telecom, and energy provided the only growth. Traders assessed manufacturing data from Canada and the US for clues that would support bets for an end to interest rate hikes.

US stock futures were divided while corporate earnings reports continued to roll in. Economic indicators, including job openings and labour turnover from June, and the July manufacturing purchasing managers’ index, were all on the docket.
