Canada’s main stock index rose higher on Monday on a broad increase, ahead of US inflation data due later in the week. Investors are eager for clues on the Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening strategy. Asian markets were down, while Euro markets were up.

Following its worst week since last December, US markets also moved upward as investors brace for more earnings reports from major-league companies. Treasury yields held steady, and energy prices were lower. The government will release monthly data on inflation in consumer prices on Tuesday.
