Canadian stocks were still in the red mid afternoon, with the S&P TSX Composite Index down 30 points. Upbeat industrial output data from China, one of Canada's largest trading partners, seemed to have failed to lift the resource-heavy stock index as easing geopolitical tensions in Syria continue to hurt commodities.

Miners were 1.36% higher in mid-afternoon trade - making it the biggest gainer - despite dropping gold, silver, and copper prices. Industrials followed with a 0.47% gain.

Meanwhile, energy stocks were down 0.21%, hurt by lower crude oil prices (down 2.36% to $106.93 a barrel). Info tech, down 0.77%, had the biggest loss.
