Canada’s main stock index closed lower on Tuesday following two days of slumps. The broad decline across indices was led by the heavyweight sector, with metals and mining not far behind.

US futures also moved into the red as investors worry that high interest rates aren’t going away any time soon as the Federal Reserve fights inflation.
