Canadian Financial Close: TSX dips with energy

WINNIPEG, Feb. 13 (CNS Canada), Feb 13, 2018 (Commodity News Service Canada, Inc. via COMTEX) --

WINNIPEG, February 13 (CNS) - The Canadian dollar finished flat against its U.S. counterpart on Tuesday as losses in crude oil were offset by advances in gold bullion.

The Canadian dollar settled on Tuesday at US$0.7937 cents or C$1.2600, compared to Monday's North American close of US$0.7935 or C$1.2603.

Strength in natural gas and metals helped prop up the loonie amid market uncertainty.

Canadian bonds were generally higher with the 10-year bond rising slightly.

The S&P/TSX composite index suffered slight losses to end the day. Weakness in the energy sector was cited as one of the key reasons why. The TSX fell 25.41 points or 0.17 percent to 15,216.47.

     Canada's agricultural sector performed as follows:
     AGT Food and Ingredients-----dn  $ 0.16    at $ 20.00
     Buhler Industries------------dn  $ 0.09    at $  4.06
     Maple Leaf Foods-------------up  $ 0.41    at $ 34.40
