TORONTO, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose sharply on Friday as the rally in crude oil prices supported the resource-linked market, while rising expectations of monetary easing by central banks in Europe and Japan supported risk appetite.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was up 250.26 points, or 2.08 percent, at 12,286.12, shortly after the open. It included a 5.4 percent jump in energy stocks. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
