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.
