 TORONTO, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rose
to a fresh two-year high on Tuesday as commodity prices surged
after the Bank of Japan took steps to ease credit to bolster
its economic recovery, raising expectations the U.S. Federal
Reserve would follow.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE climbed 177.42
points, or 1.44 percent, to 12,500.36, its strongest level
since Sept. 26, 2008.
