TORONTO, June 24 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rose on Wednesday after an OECD report said the global economic outlook has improved for the first time in two years.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially ended up 202.47 points, or 2.05 percent, at 10,099.19, reclaiming some of the steep losses suffered early in the week. All of the TSX's 10 sectors ended higher, led by the weighty financials index. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
