Toronto stocks rally 600 points on bailout hopes
TORONTO, Sept 30 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index climbed more than 600 points on Tuesday, recouping much of the previous day's heavy losses 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 ended unofficially up 604.84 points, or 5.36 percent, at 11,889.91.
The rally comes after the index marked its biggest one-day percentage drop in nearly eight years on Monday. (Reporting by Cameron French; editing by Rob Wilson)
