CANADA STOCKS-TSX falls 2.7 pct on black day for gold miners

TORONTO, April 15 (Reuters) - Canada's gold miners plunged
on Monday, dragging the country's main stock index to a
five-month low as weaker-than-expected Chinese data prompted a
wholesale retreat from bullion and a string of commodities.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 332.71 points, or 2.70
percent, at 12,004.88. 
    That was its sharpest one-day fall since June 21 last year
and took the resource-rich index to its lowest close since Nov
16.
