The TSX is nudging a six year high today, on mixed sectors. Energy is the biggest gainer this morning, up 0.82%. Crude oil is up 0.24%, as rising violence in Iraq threatens global oil supply.

Financials are the next biggest gainer this morning, up 0.25%.

Canadian factory sales fell slightly in April, down by 0.1%. Oil and coal industries lost 5%, with sales at $6.9 billion.
