TSX Closes Up Around 90 Pts; Defies U.S. Losses

Toronto's main stock index closed up around 90 points on Wednesday after another eventful day. But at least it made gains, unlike stock markets in the United States, perhaps reflecting the fact that the Canadian economy is in much better shape than that of its North American partner and, as such, is generating less skittish volatile among investors.

The Dow Jones industrial average at the close was down 519 points or 4.6%, to 10,719. The S&P 500 fell 51, or 4.4%, to 1,1120, and the Nasdaq fell about 100 points, or 4%.
