The price of oil is at its highest in 3.5 years at $71.49 a barrel.  And while that isn’t helping prices at the pumps it is helping Bay Street.  The TSX closed higher yesterday for the tenth straight trading session in a row, up 35 points to 16,043.  That’s up 5-percent in the second quarter.  Today traders will be watching the loonie as word comes that NAFTA talk are not going well. The loonie is trading at 0.78 US.
