The major North American stock indices rallied again this week, buoyed by reports that China and the U.S. were negotiating trade concessions that would see China increase imports from the U.S. to bring its trade deficit with the U.S. to zero. In Canada, December’s all-items inflation rate ratcheted up to an annual 2.0% from 1.7% in November, a move largely driven by the way airfares are calculated, and one widely expected to reverse in coming months. U.S. annual inflation decelerated to 1.9% as December’s month-over-month rate fell 0.1% as energy prices declines. The calmer inflation picture in both countries suggests both the Bank of Canada and the Federal Reserve have plenty of wiggle room to ease off further rate hikes in the immediate future. Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index gained 2.4% on the week, helped along by a 4.2% rise in the price of crude oil. The main U.S. indices followed suit, with the S&P 500 Composite gaining 2.9% on the week, and the Nasdaq Composite rising 2.7%.

Students of history may recall the War of the Roses, which was waged more than 500 years ago. It was an epic battle between two rival branches of the English royal family that both had claims to England’s throne – the House of Lancaster, represented by a red rose, and the House of York, represented by a white rose. While the House of Lancaster ultimately won the War of the Roses, by some measures, there was no real winner. The war lasted for many years and resulted in very significant damage to both houses. In fact, by the end of the war, the male lines in both houses had been eliminated.
