 TORONTO, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index had
its highest finish since Sept. 26, 2008 on Tuesday as commodity
prices surged on expectations the U.S. Federal Reserve may
follow in the footsteps of the Bank of Japan, which took steps
to ease credit to bolster its economic recovery.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed
up 175.06 points, or 1.42 percent, at 12,498.00.
