CANADA STOCKS-TSX closes at highest level in over 2 years

TORONTO, Dec 24 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index tilted higher in quiet Christmas Eve trade on Friday as higher oil prices and M&A activity lifted energy and financial shares and kept the index on track to end the year at its highest level since the 2008 financial crisis.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 11.96 points, or 0.1 percent at 13,383.16. It was its highest close since the end of August 2008.

The market closed at 1 p.m. (1800 GMT) on Friday and will reopen on Dec. 29.
