The broader Canadian stock market index settled in red on Monday, July 26, ahead of the deluge of earnings reports expected from major enterprises this week.


The decline was mainly motored by the technology sector, which descended by around 1.29%, and the industrial sector, which fell about 0.68%. Shares of ecommerce giant Shopify Inc. and cybersecurity firm BlackBerry Ltd. were the worst hit entities in the technology sector. In the industrials, Aecon Group and Westshore Terminal led the decline with a fall of 2.1% and 2.9%, respectively.

The main index’s decline was partially offset by the energy sector’s gain of around 1.37%.

The S&P/TSX composite Index plummeted 23.47 points, or 0.12%, to settle at 20,164.96 on Monday.
