TSX gains strength in volatile trad­ing

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS -

TORONTO — The Toronto stock mar­ket gained ground in volatile trad­ing Wed­nes­day as oil prices rose and the U.S. cen­tral bank said it would leave its overnight in­ter­est rate un­changed. The S&P/TSX com­pos­ite in­dex added 46.45 points to end the day at 12,377.77, af­ter ris­ing 188 points on Tues­day. The TSX is still down nearly 1,000 points from Dec. 24 as con­tin­u­ing wor­ries about the price of oil, global growth and China’s eco­nomic per­for­mance have weighed on mar­kets.
