TORONTO, June 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
recorded its biggest one-day percentage fall since April 15
after the U.S. Federal Reserve's hint at exiting its bond buying
program hit global markets and triggered a huge selloff in
gold-mining shares.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 299.72 points, or 2.44
percent, at 11,968.57. All of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red, and gold stocks dropped 7.3 percent.
