CANADA STOCKS-TSX nears 3-week low as oil prices drop

TORONTO, Jan 6 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index fell to a nearly three-week low on Tuesday as oil prices plunged on more concerns about a global supply glut, helping push down shares of energy producers.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 145.93 points, or 1.01 percent, at 14,246.77. Nine of the 10 main sectors on the index were in the red. (Reporting by John Tilak; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn)
