TORONTO, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index finished lower on Monday but managed to cut its losses toward the end of the session as resource shares regained ground and gold-mining issues rose.
A flare-up of concern over the euro zone debt crisis cast a pall over equities and other risky assets on Monday and that kept the Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE on a downward path that is now five sessions long.
The index unofficially finished 27.18 points, or 0.2 percent, lower at 13,245.12. Nine of the index’s 10 main groups were lower, led by weakness in financials. The utilities group was flat. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
