 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.
