TORONTO, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index spiked to its highest close in almost two weeks on Wednesday as gold miners surged with the precious metal after the Federal Reserve held U.S. interest rates steady.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 188.84 points, or 1.30 percent, at 14,710.82. All 10 main sectors rose. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by James Dalgleish)
