Canadian Market Summary

GoCs reversed lower, pressured by the rally on Wall Street and the spike in crude oil to US$52/bbl. Yields headed lower in early trade, playing catch up with Treasuries following Friday's disappointing U.S. nonfarm payrolls report. But dovish comments from Fed's Dudley helped support stocks and changed fortunes for GoCs.

USD-CAD found support ahead of Friday's low at 1.2426. And the S&P/TSX Composite rallied in tandem with Wall Street and commodity markets
