Canada’s main stock index was weighed down on Monday by commodity-linked and financial stocks. The telecom and utilities sectors posted some gains. Last week’s economic data out of the United States last week sparked fears of further interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.

US stock markets also closed lower as traders took a step back on moves dictated by when the Fed could start cutting rates after the latest payrolls report showed the US economy added jobs at a rapid pace in January.
