The TSX, building on yesterday's gains, is up 84 points this morning, led by energy (+1.73%). Crude oil is trading at US$45.15. The US Energy Information Administration will release its weekly look at U.S. oil inventories, supply and production and 10:30 ET. The report follows on Thursday's release of inventory data from the American Petroleum Institute, which showed a rise of 6.9 million barrels in U.S. crude inventories.

The healthcare sector is the second biggest gainer, up 1.23%. Aphria (APHA.TO) is the most actively traded stock on the TSX and up 11.8% after Green Growth Brands made an unsolicited proposal to acquire the company via an all-share transaction.

Info tech is the sole decliner, shedding 0.72%.
