However, the index was still lack of vitality Wednesday, since investors were worried about the risks from the real estate mortgage. Higher prices and an increase in mortgage rates have made home affordability more of a problem for the average Canadian family, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) said. RBC's latest research showed that the affordability of Canadian families deteriorated over the summer, the second consecutive drop in as many quarters. As well, Canadian Real Estate Association' s latest report indicated that the average resale price of a home was about 391,820 Canadian dollars in October, which was 8.5 per cent higher than a year earlier.

In company news, Descartes Systems Group, which operates a global logistics system used by freight carriers, said it expects revenue for its fiscal third quarter will be in a range of 38.5 million U.S. dollars to 38.8 million U.S. dollars versus expectations of 38.43 million U.S. dollars. As for the currency news, Goldman Sachs said loonie, the nick name for Canadian dollar, will fall in 2014. The bank analyzed that after trading in a fairly narrow band between 95 U.S cents and 1.05 U.S. dollars for the past three years, the loonie is to lose some of its value next year. The Canadian dollar handed back 0.46 U.S. cents to 94.40 U.S cents U.S.
