CANADA STOCKS-TSX falls as bank earnings weigh, losses pared as oil reverses

TORONTO, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Canada’s benchmark stock index fell on Wednesday as weaker-than-expected bank earnings dragged down financial stocks, but losses were pared as crude oil prices reversed course providing support for energy stocks.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 23.17 points, or 0.18 percent, at 12,740.27. It included a 1.6 percent drop in the financials group. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
