TORONTO, Aug 17 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index ended barely lower on Wednesday, paring steeper losses after the minutes of the latest Federal Reserve policy meeting offered a balanced view on when it may hike U.S. interest rates, while losses among gold miners and oil and gas producers weighed.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 5.84 points, or 0.04 percent, at 14,697.60. Six of its 10 main groups rose. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by James Dalgleish)
