Investors rally on stock market bounce

Investors are pouring into the Canadian stock market, and while the benchmark S&P/TSX composite index has recovered a little bit of ground in recent weeks, it still sits below its July highs.

The index’s gain has been more than twice as big as the index’s loss of 10.3 per cent over the past five months, according to FactSet data.

The gains are mostly in technology stocks.

The S&amps tumbled 7.3 points, or 1.5 per cent, to 5,966.55 on Wednesday, compared with a 1.4-per-cent drop for the TSX composite.

The gain was the second-biggest gain among all Canadian stocks over the period, and the biggest gain among U.S. shares, according, FactSet.

The rally in the index has been driven by the rebound in the Canadian dollar.

The price of the greenback has fallen against the U.K. dollar since its recent decline, as investors seek to buy Canadian shares and buy into emerging markets.

That has helped to boost demand for Canadian equities, which have enjoyed a rebound from a slump in oil prices and geopolitical tensions.

But there is a risk the Canadian economy is slowing.

“We have a real problem with a number of sectors that are very much struggling, and we have a very high level of unemployment, so it’s certainly going to be a factor in our growth,” said David McCallion, chief economist at BMO Capital Markets.

“If you look at the economy, it’s already slowing down, so we’re not going to see a big rebound in Canada.”

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose nearly 2,000 points, adding a little more than 4 per cent to 23,923.06.

The Nasdaq composite gained about 2 per cent but fell almost 9 per cent.

The Russell 2000 rose more than 6 per cent in after-hours trading.

When do you get to choose your retirement fund?

lilia was a student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

When she was 17, she became pregnant.

As lilia tells it, the baby’s father wasn’t happy about the pregnancy.

The family split up and her mother, who had been married for 14 years, moved out.

Lilia got a job at the UIC’s law school and, at 23, started taking classes to get a law degree.

At one point, lilia, who was studying business, was asked to join the investment class at her law school.

She joined.

Lilia, now 26, says she started investing around the same time she joined the class.

She says it was around 2007, after she finished her final year of law school, that she started getting calls from investment classes.

One of the students, who lilia has never named, told her that she was in the investment classes and asked her to be his investor.

The student had told lilia that she had a boyfriend, who didn’t live with her.

After the first investment class that lilia joined, the student told her, she needed to tell her boyfriend that she didn’t want to date him anymore, liza says.

The boyfriend didn’t like that, she says.

Then, the same year, she was asked if she wanted to be a member of a class, which she declined.

In the third investment class she was a member, the person who called her told her to get married.

liza did.

She met her boyfriend in a bar and was married the next year.

When she came out to her parents, she told them, she had made the decision.

lilia said she wasn’t angry, but she was sad because she didn, too.

I didn’t have a boyfriend.

She told her parents.

She was very supportive, she said.

lia had no idea she was gay.

Now, she is a registered nurse in the Chicago area, and she has a new boyfriend.

“It’s been really hard for me,” lilia says.

“I’ve been a really strong believer in the love of my life.

We are really in a place right now where I think I’m going to be really, really happy.

I feel like I have a really good life.”
