CANADA STOCKS-TSX tumbles to fresh 2-1/2-year low as oil prices plunge

TORONTO, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index tumbled to a fresh 2-1/2-year low on Friday as a deep drop in crude oil prices added to financial turmoil at the start of 2016, weighing heavily on the resource-linked market.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 262.57 points, or 2.13 percent, at 12,073.46. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
