Canadian Financing Bulletin (CFB) Reports Q2 Results for Mining, Technology, and Energy Sectors

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 24, 2010) - Volatility was the name of the game in second quarter on the TSX and TSXV. Building off a stabilizing first quarter, April showed many sign of strong global economic recovery; in May and June, the data grew progressively worse. Uncertainty over European sovereign debt and potential trade disputes between America and China stood out, leading to a drop-off in commodities pricing. Oil prices again gained momentum in the face of a disastrous undersea blow-out in the Gulf of Mexico. Given that the USD raised smartly - due mainly to Euro uncertainty and the consequent flight to safety – gold and oil held their own well. Major indices are still acting range-bound though the range has broadened; in the face of continuing mixed economic signals, look for on-going volatility within this 1000 point range.
