TSX Closes Down Two Dozen Pts On Continuing Euro Debt Concerns
The TSX closed Friday down around two dozen points, losing earlier gains on continuing concerns about the European debt crisis.
Earlier today the index was up nearly 1% on the back of a minor rally by gold miners as investors reportedly looked past a drop in bullion prices. Barrick Gold (ABX.TO) was up more than 2%, but closed up more than 1%.
Oil and gas issues also gave the index its early life. Suncor Energy (SU.TO) was up 0.7%, but ended the day more than 2% lower.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 37.57 points, or 0.3 percent, at 11,522.89, after opening lower at 11,483.85.
