CANADA STOCKS-TSX ends higher on golds, Fed
TORONTO, March 16 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index ended at its highest point since September 2008 on Tuesday as higher gold prices helped miners catch a bid and the market reacted positively to the U.S. Federal Reserve renewing its pledge to keep interest rates low for an extended period.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 86.68 points, or 0.72 percent, at 12,095.48.
