1 Min Read

TORONTO, Sept 30 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index climbed almost 5 percent on Tuesday as energy issues got a boost from crude's recovery while hopes for a deal on the $700 billion Wall Street bailout calmed investor nerves.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE jumped 502.84 points, or 4.5 percent, to 11,787.91.

The rally comes after the index marked its biggest one-day percentage drop in nearly eight years on Monday. ($1=$1.06 Canadian) (Reporting by Scott Anderson; editing by Rob Wilson)
