TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index climbed on Friday, driven by a surge in shares of energy and mining companies rebounding from the brutal selloff earlier in the week.
The benchmark index gained for a fourth straight session and ended the week nearly 3 percent higher.
Still, fund managers were cautious about the prospects for the industry.
“I don’t think we’re out of the woods in any way,” said David Cockfield, managing director and portfolio manager at Northland Wealth Management.
“It’s going to take a while for the supply and demand dynamics to rebalance.”
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE closed up 98.40 points, or 0.71 percent, at 13,865.07.
Barrick Gold Corp (ABX.TO) jumped 4.3 percent to C$9.44.
