CANADA STOCKS-TSX edges lower as financials, industrials retreat

TORONTO, July 18 (Reuters) – Canada’s benchmark stock index
edged lower on Tuesday as financials and industrials led
declines, but the TSX climbed off its lows for the session as
higher oil prices boosted energy shares.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index
unofficially closed down 15.79 points, or 0.1 percent,
at 15,149.57. Seven of the index’s 10 main industry groups ended
lower.
