CANADA STOCKS-TSX ends slide as markets assess Japan quake

TORONTO, March 11 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index closed higher on Friday as investors bought beaten-down stocks and the market took comfort in lower oil prices and predicted increased demand for basic materials as a result of the huge earthquake in Japan.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 35.67 points, or 0.26 percent, at 13,674.25 after dropping for the previous four days. (Reporting by Claire Sibonney; editing by Peter Galloway)
