Despite global markets seeing red, equities in Canada’s largest centre gained on Monday as energy stocks rallied on higher crude prices. Mining and utilities stocks also saw gains on the TSX as the tech sector moved lower. Investors now wait for domestic inflation data due this week.

Wall Street ended lower, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones saw little change. Traders wonder if the market rally could find more momentum in this last week of June. It’s a light week for economics reports and corporate earnings, which are highlighted by Walgreens Boots Alliance on Tuesday and Nike on Thursday. Europe is also on people’s radar after a brief rebellion in Russia over the weekend and worries over the security of a nuclear plant in Ukraine have many on edge.
