CANADA STOCKS-TSX surges on Fed plan despite weak Potash
TORONTO, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index closed at its highest level in more than two years on Thursday as commodity prices soared a day after the U.S. Federal Reserve unveiled its plans to jolt the economy.
The strength overshadowed a drop in Potash Corp shares after the Canadian government blocked BHP Billiton's takeover bid.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially ended up 207.67 points, or 1.64 percent, at 12,878.79, its strongest close since Sept. 19, 2008. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
