5 Top Weekly TSX Stocks: Nighthawk Gold Rises on Updated Mineral Resource for Colomac

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) closed the week ending on Friday February 10 almost neutral, at 20,612.12.

The index reached its weekly high on Tuesday (February 7), supported by gains in energy stocks as oil prices increased on hopes of an uptick in demand from China.
