5 Top Weekly TSXV Stocks: North Peak Gains on Mine Complex Acquisition Deal

The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) saw a gentle rise last week, ending up 1.89 percent.

The Bank of Canada held interest rates steady at its latest policy meeting, but officials reportedly discussed another hike. The central bank has a 2 percent target for inflation, and a “higher for longer” strategy may be needed to get back to that level.

Meanwhile, in the commodities sector, both gold and silver were on the rise, with the former approaching its all-time high and the latter moving past US$26 per ounce. Both have retreated since then, but remain elevated.

Read on to see which TSXV-listed resource stocks saw the biggest share price gains last week.
