Canada’s main stock index saw another flat close to start the trading week. This week’s data on U.S. inflation and the Bank of Canada’s decision on monetary policy weighed on investors’ minds. The financial sector closed in the red on the TSX to join decliners such as the telecom and utilities sectors, though energy and mining provided some lift.

As the corporate earnings season kicks off, US markets were up, but saw little overall growth ahead of new inflation data for the Federal Reserve to look through before its next policy meeting later this month.
