A slew of strong quarterly results and a jump in commodities helped lift Equities in Canada’s biggest market on Thursday. As investors continued to digest corporate earnings, gold miners helped lead the charge to push the TSX higher in a mostly broad rally. The health care sector was the only decliner.

Following bleak forecasts from Meta and Qualcomm, coupled with an early reading which showed the U.S. economy contracted again in Q2, Wall Street’s main indexes opened mixed, but closed higher.

Markets have struggled under concerns of runaway inflation coupled with aggressive monetary policy tightening biting into economic growth. The Commerce Department said in its advance estimate that the GDP fell at a 0.9 per cent annualized rate last quarter.
