July 20 (Reuters) – Canada’s benchmark index edged lower on Wednesday after data showed inflation accelerated in June, while a drop in crude and gold prices also pressured the resource-heavy market.

At 9:30 a.m. ET (13:30 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 25.27 points, or 0.13%, at 18,912.44. (Reporting by Bansari Mayur Kamdar in Bengaluru; Editing by Aditya Soni)
