CANADA STOCKS-Banks, commodities help push TSX higher

TORONTO, April 14 (Reuters) - Banks powered Toronto’s main stock index higher on Wednesday, encouraged by forecast-beating results from U.S. bank JPMorgan (JPM.N), while upbeat U.S. economic data and firmer commodity prices played supporting roles in the rise.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 98.61 points, or 0.81 percent, at 12,200.13. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
