Toronto stocks shoot higher on central bank plan

TORONTO, March 11 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange’s main index shot out of the starting gate on Tuesday, emboldened by a joint plan by the Bank of Canada and other central banks to inject liquidity into faltering world credit markets.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 270.21 points, or 2.1 percent, to 13,275.30 immediately after the opening bell, regaining the steep losses from the previous session.
