(Reuters) – Canada’s main stock index opened lower on Friday, bogged down by technology and healthcare shares, as investors fretted over inflation and rising interest rates though an uptick in energy shares capped losses.
At 9:37 a.m. ET (13:37 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 27.47 points, or 0.15%, at 18,551.82.
