The major deal between Canada’s two main telecom companies, Rogers and Shaw, made progress on Friday, helping the TSX close higher in a broad increase across sectors. Gains were capped on concerns over “soft landing” challenges for the economy, however.

Wall Street’s main indexes also closed higher, seeing the NASDAQ and S&P 500 score a fourth straight week of gains. Bets of another super-sized interest rate hike seem to be cooling on evidence that inflation could be easing.
