TORONTO Jan 21 (Reuters) - Toronto's key stock index bounced of an earlier low and was up more than 100 points by mid-afternoon on Wednesday as a rally by oil prices helped lift the resource-heavy market.

At 2:33 p.m. (1930 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 101.83 points, or 1.2 percent, at 8,606.76. Earlier, the TSX had fallen as much as 1.3 percent. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Rob Wilson)
