TORONTO, July 17 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index edged lower on Monday as data showing a slowdown in the housing market weighed on the outlook for financials, offsetting gains for the materials group as metal prices climbed.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 9.45 points, or 0.06 percent, at 15,165.36. Six of the index’s 10 main groups ended down. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; editing by Diane Craft)
