TORONTO, Dec 11 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
recorded its biggest single-day drop in about 5-1/2 months on
Wednesday after a provisional U.S. budget agreement raised fears
the Federal Reserve might begin scaling back its monetary
stimulus program soon.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 190.59 points, or 1.43
percent, at 13,133.42. All of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
