Investing.com -- The Canadian index tracked Wall Street lower as expectations for the Fed remaining hawkish continued to amp up. After ADP (NASDAQ:ADP) numbers and Jobless Claims in the US earlier this week, today’s much-watched Non-Farm payrolls reflected robustness in the US economy, giving the Federal Reserve cover to remain aggressive.

Further losses on the commodity-heavy Canadian index were capped by crude’s continued rally, helping the TSX outperform its Wall Street counterpart this morning despite remaining deeply in the red. Oil extended its rally on Friday, on track for sharp weekly gains after OPEC+ cut its output target by 2 million barrels a day earlier this week

The prospect of EU sanctions and oil caps on Russia also loom worsening worries of tight supply. Brent and WTI were both on track for weekly gains of more than 12%.

The Fed are a bunch of crooks. They are so heavily short they need to kill any positive sentiment in an already Beaten down market. Raising rates until something breaks is absurd. Shortsqueeze the FED !
