CANADA STOCKS-TSX ends down sharply as Fed, Europe weigh
By Claire Sibonney TORONTO, April 4 (Reuters) - Sinking commodity stocks led Canadian equities to a near 12-week low on Wednesday, a day after the U.S. central bank crushed hopes for more monetary stimulus and as a weak Spanish bond auction signaled the effects of earlier European funding operations may be waning. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 145.02 points, or 1.18 percent, to 12,178.59. Earlier in the session, the index hit its weakest level since Jan. 13.
