TSX ends higher

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WEEKEND BUSINESS - THE CANA­DIAN PRESS

The Toronto stock mar­ket edged higher in light trad­ing Fri­day that ap­peared to lack di­rec­tion ahead of a week­end debt ref­er­en­dum in Greece and with mar­kets in New York shut­tered for U.S. In­de­pen­dence Day.

At mid-af­ter­noon, the S&P/TSX com­pos­ite in­dex was up 20.28 points at 14.658.27 af­ter ris­ing al­most 148 points the pre­vi­ous two trad­ing days.

But Canada's main mar­ket was still poised for a big loss on the week - and flat for the year to date - cour­tesy of an al­most 318-point drop Mon­day on fears of pos­si­ble knock-on ef­fects from Greece's debt woes.

Mean­while, the loonie con­tin­ued to drift lower, down 0.07 of a U.S. cent at 79.64 cents.
