Canada’s stock market is on pace for its biggest gain in a decade. But 2020 may be the year it stands above the pack.
Despite an 18% climb so far in 2019 with 15 fresh records and $408 billion in market value added, the S&P/TSX Composite Index is in the middle of the pack compared with top-performing stock markets.
