TSX to Open with Gains As Gold Lifts Miners
Canada's benchmark index may start strong on Thursday, following a choppy session in the previous day, with gold and silver prices rising 0.24% and 0.38%, respectively.
September futures on the S&P TSX index were slightly changed in recent trading, down 0.01%.
The TSX was weighed down on Wednesday by tensions in Ukraine and Russia. After sending aid to eastern Ukraine, reports on Wednesday said that Russia was denied entry to the Ukrainian border by officials. Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov was even cited as saying: "Provocation by a cynical aggressor is not permissible on our territory."
