TSX turns negative shortly after open, Potash drags

TORONTO, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index turned negative shortly after opening modestly higher on Wednesday, as a disappointing forecast from Potash Corp , the world’s largest fertilizer maker, offset gains in energy shares.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 0.83 point to 12,406.87.
