Daily market snapshot

Stocks rise in response to soft U.S. economic data: Equity markets finished higher Tuesday, with corporate earnings and economic growth center stage for markets. The TSX gained roughly 0.7% while the S&P 500 finished the day up over 1%.* Sector leadership was broad based with most sectors of the S&P 500 finishing higher led by communication services and technology.* Risk-on sentiment was evident in markets today with U.S. small-cap stocks outperforming and rising by over 1.7%.* Markets responded favourably to a softer-than-expected S&P Global Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) reading, which signaled U.S. economic activity continued to expand in April but at a slower pace than the prior month.* While softer economic growth seems hardly like something to root for, markets are likely viewing this reading through the lens that softer economic growth could lead to lower inflation and rate cuts from the Fed. The 10-year GoC yield was little changed at around 3.76% today while U.S. 10-year yield ticked down to around 4.60%.* In the commodity space, oil prices finished the day higher, rising to just above $83 per barrel.
