U.S. stocks trimmed gains following mixed hiring data this week, the S&P 500 traded off recent highs with lower volume and closed the week down 1.15%, while the Nasdaq fell 0.90%. Investors are analyzing government jobs data that fell short of estimates on Friday, indicating cracks in the labour market but also highlighting wage inflation as a threat. The focus will shift to earnings season next week as we will begin to get Q2 earnings numbers as well as potential outlooks for the second half of the year.

U.S. inflation data is set to be released next week and traders are currently leaning towards the expectation of a rate hike at the upcoming Fed meeting. The Canadian 10yr also jumped this week, increasing 30bps to 3.57%.
