TORONTO, Jan 24 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
recorded its biggest single-day drop in seven months on Friday
as expectations the U.S. Federal Reserve will further scale back
its stimulus program gathered momentum, hitting emerging-market
assets and denting investor sentiment.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 215.21 points, or 1.54
percent, at 13,717.76. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
