CANADA STOCKS-TSX hits 2-year high as gold miners climb
TORONTO, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index closed at its highest level in more than two years on Thursday, led by gold miners, as the ill-effects of a 16-day U.S. government shutdown convinced investors the Federal Reserve will maintain its monetary stimulus. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 79.15 points, or 0.61 percent, at 13,036.36. It had not been that buoyant since late July, 2011.
