Canada's economy rebounded more than economists forecast in February, a reassuring sign the nation is poised to emerge from a recent soft patch in growth. Gross domestic product expanded 0.4 percent during the month following a 0.1 percent contraction in January, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday in Ottawa. Economists anticipated a 0.3 percent gain. The gains were due to idled oil and auto production coming back on line. Currently, the TSX is down 0.29% while the DOW is down 0.63%. EURCAD is down 0.12% trading between 1.5431 and 1.5503. GBPCAD is down 0.75% trading between 1.7507 and 1.7673. JPYCAD is down 0.15% trading between 0.01170 and 0.01174. Gold is down 0.72% trading between $1,305 and $1,315USD/oz., silver is down 0.88% trading between $16.19 and $16.34USD/oz., while oil is down 1.29% trading between $67.61 and $68.88.
