Canadian Financial Close: Loonie continues to show strength

Winnipeg, MB, Sept. 11, 2017 (CNS Canada), Sep 11, 2017 (Commodity News Service Canada, Inc. via COMTEX) --

WINNIPEG, September 11 - The Canadian dollar kept its head above the 82 US cent mark on Monday, as the commodity-backed currency continues to outperform several of its other international counterparts.

Higher prices for crude oil and natural gas boosted the Canadian dollar. Losses in gold bullion limited the gains.

Canadian bonds were weaker on Monday as investors sold off fixed assets and picked up equities.

The Canadian dollar ended Monday at US$0.8232 cents or C$1.2148, compared to Friday's North American close of US$0.8243 or C$1.2132.

In Toronto, the S&P/TSX Composite Index rose by 54.98 points, or 0.37% to 15,040.30.
