Investing.com -- The TSX traded in the red at midday, tracking Wall Street lower as expectations for Fed hawkishness following the last few positive economic data dampened investor sentimentt.

Canadian investors are also watching for the Bank of Canada’s policy announcement tomorrow. Markets are pricing in a chance of a muted 25 bp move, although economists are not discounting the chance of a 50 bp rate hike. 

The commodity-heavy Canadian index was also pressured by the continued slide in crude, as Fed fears outweighed bullishness from the Chinese reopening, EU price caps on Russian crude, and OPEC’s maintenance of output.
