CANADA STOCKS-TSX turns lower as commodity shares drop
TORONTO, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index turned negative on Friday morning as a rising U.S. dollar cut into commodity price gains.
At 11:09 a.m. (1609 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 3.79 points at 11,469.27. The index had risen in early action, boosted by higher oil prices and a surge in Research In Motion RIM.TO shares after the company reported a stronger quarterly profit and an upbeat outlook late on Thursday.
