TORONTO, April 25 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose to a two-month high, led by gains for the financial and energy groups, while some lumber stocks rallied after the U.S. set duties on the product that were lower than some market participants had expected.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was up 68.56 points, or 0.44 percent, at 15,781.02, shortly after the open. Nine of the index’s 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
