As economic pessimism lingers, the Canadian stock market is up, but only slightly over the past year. However, the 5-year growth rate is about 30%.


Global commodity prices stabilized almost a year ago, which is why inflation has been on the way down since last summer. Only time will tell us if the target of 2% will be met before 2024.
