CANADA STOCKS-Toronto index pops back into positive territory

TORONTO, March 18 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index clawed its way back into positive territory by mid afternoon on Wednesday with a good chunk of the move spurred by the U.S. Federal Reserve’s plan to buy long-term U.S. government debt.

At 2:25 p.m. (1825 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 3.56 points at 8,563.16. Earlier in the session it had fallen as much as 3.2 percent. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
