TORONTO, March 19 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
closed lower on Wednesday after the U.S. Federal Reserve pushed
forward with a withdrawal of monetary stimulus and dropped a
guideline for when interest rates may eventually rise.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 34.94 points, or 0.24
percent, at 14,334.04. Half of the ten main sectors slipped in
the session.
