Commodity-related shares rebounded on the back of firmer oil and metals prices, helping to limit losses in other sectors, while the dollar eased in anticipation of a possible hint from the Federal Reserve on the timing of an expected rate hike. The Fed's Chair Janet Yellen is scheduled to take part in a discussion in London later on Tuesday. Investors expect her to underline her positive view on the U.S. economy, which would support the Fed's forecast of a rate hike this year. But softer-than-expected U.S. data overnight gave rise to some caution. New orders for key U.S.-made capital goods unexpectedly fell in May and shipments also declined, suggesting a loss of momentum in the manufacturing sector halfway through the second quarter. Her words will be scrutinized for any colour about the timing of the next rate hike against a backdrop of mounting concerns over the inflation outlook. Currently, the TSX is down 0.11% while the DOW is down 0.10%. EURCAD is down 0.22% trading between 1.4801 and 1.4917. GBPCAD is down 0.02% trading between 1.6840 and 1.6890. JPYCAD is down 0.34% trading between 0.01178 and 0.01184. Gold is up 0.12% trading between $1,241 and $1,253USD/oz., silver is up 0.25% trading between $16.54 and $16.70USD/oz., while oil is up 1.00% trading between $43.35 and $43.99.
