The TSX retreated nearly 2% last week, falling below its 50-day moving average and experiencing a six-week low on broad-based losses, says Prab Sagoo, associate director at Nasdaq Advisory Services, in his weekly commentary.

Further, the TSX is moving close to technically oversold levels, he adds, noting that small caps, and energy and healthcare names struggled most last week. As a result, says Sagoo, “investors retreated to the safety of gold and materials names, which outperformed.”
