Stocks dipped and the US dollar gained on Tuesday after a Federal Reserve official's remark appearing to make a near-term rise in US interest rates less likely only partially calmed investor nerves. There is still some lingering disappointment that the European Central Bank did not signal an extension of its bond –buying stimulus program at its last meeting. The feeling in the market is that monetary policy was reaching its limits as a tool to lift the global economy. Currently the TSX is down 0.95% while the Dow is down 0.96%. EURCAD is up 0.97% trading between 1.4645 and 1.4800. GBPCAD is down 0.01% trading between 1.7337 and 1.7445. JPYCAD is up 0.80% trading between 0.01279 and 0.01289. Gold is down 0.18% trading between $1,322 and $1,332USD/oz., silver is down 0.55% trading between $18.95 and $19.28USD/oz., while oil is down 2.30% trading between $44.91 and $46.10.
