Global equity markets inched up 0.5% last week (up 1.6% in the prior week). January U.S. CPI data is expected this week. As we are expecting record inflation, we believe the S&P 500 will likely trend lower this week amid concerns of faster than expected rate hikes.

 

Valuations of gold producers were up 2% (down 3% previously) last week; base metal producers were up 4% (down 1%).

 

Prices of mainstream/popular cryptos increased 15% on average last week, even though the S&P 500 was relatively flat, crypto trading volumes declined, and gold prices increased.

 

As of February 7, 2022, there are 3,031 retail cannabis stores in Canada, a WoW increase of 14 stores, including 12 in Ontario, two in Alberta, and one closure in B.C.
