Lower Bullion Prices And Recession Fears Might Hurt Canadian Shares

(RTTNews) - Lower Canadian and U.S. futures and weak bullion prices point to a negative start for stocks in the Canadian market on Monday.

Rising concerns about a possible recession next year weigh on global stocks. The focus will be on Fed Chair Jerome Powell's keynote address at the Kansas City Fed's annual economic symposium this week.

On the economic front, data on new housing prices in Canada is due at 8:30 AM ET.

Canadian stocks ended lower on Friday, giving back ground following recent strength. The benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index came under pressure early in the session and remained firmly negative throughout the day. The index ended the session down 153.99 points or 0.8% at 20,111.38.
