TORONTO, Dec 14 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index slumped 1.2 percent on Wednesday, hitting a one-week low, in a broad retreat led by gold miners and energy stocks after the U.S. Federal Reserve hiked rates as expected and pointed to a faster pace of increases in 2017.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 188.09 points, or 1.22 percent, at 15,197.18. That was its sharpest one-day fall since Nov. 11. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp)
