Investing.com – Canada's main stock index, the S&P/TSX Composite tracked Wall Street higher as markets digested comments from Fed Chair Jerome Powell, raising bets that the US central bank has concluded its policy tightening campaign.

Powell acknowledged progress in lowering inflation and noted that monetary policy was slowing the economy in line with expectations.

Markets largely shrugged off Powell’s caveat that it "would be premature to conclude with confidence that we have achieved a sufficiently restrictive stance, or to speculate on when policy might ease."
