Canadian markets saw a hopeful upward trend with the health care sector taking today’s lead spot. Specialists are predicting the energy sector to undergo a cash harvesting phase for 2023 with major increases by the end of the year, overriding the dip it saw today.

Meanwhile, down in the U.S. markets saw the same lucky green in all major indices closing in the gain. However, reports of the labour market have stirred things up again as there are more jobs available than originally thought.
