Commodities took a dive on Thursday after scoring some early gains and the TSX went with it. Global markets also struggled, but more dovish-than-expected words from US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell boosted some risk appetite. The industrial, tech, and utilities markets ended higher.

The NASDAQ and S&P 500 touched roughly five-month highs and Meta shares rallied on serious cost controls. The rest of the FAANG group, Apple, Amazon and Google parent Alphabet moved higher ahead of their results due after the market closes.
