The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 21,611.76 by midday on Friday (November 19).
The index edged down on the last day of the week weighed down by energy stocks as fears of rising COVID-19 cases in Europe increased.
On Friday, gold gained on the back of inflation concerns with sister metal silver remaining mostly unchanged.
