TORONTO, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose on Thursday, led by gold mining stocks as weak U.S. manufacturing data tempered expectations for Federal Reserve interest rate hikes.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 85.96 points, or 0.59 percent, at 14,683.91. Eight of the index’s 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Jonathan Oatis)
