CANADA STOCKS-TSX hits 5-week low as financials, industrials slide

TORONTO, March 23 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index fell to a five-week low on Friday, led by declines for financial and industrial shares, as domestic data showed hotter-than-expected inflation and fears of a global trade war gripped investors.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 176.19 points, or 1.14 percent, at 15,223.74. Eight of the index’s 10 main groups ended lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith Editing by James Dalgleish)
