The close: Materials and energy sectors propel TSX to record high
The Canadian benchmark stock index started the week by closing at a fresh record high, propelled by rallies in both the materials and energy sectors, even as U.S. stocks finished lower amid ongoing concerns about inflation and looming tighter monetary policy.
 
Gold climbed to its highest level in more than three months, while Brent crude tested the US$70 per barrel level.
 
The S&P/TSX Composite Index closed up 107.96 points, or 0.56%, at 19,474.65.
 
That only modestly surpassed the previous record high set on May 7, by less than two points. But the gains looked impressive on a day when Wall Street couldn’t pull out of the red.
