The mar­kets to­day

TORONTO (CP) — Fall­ing oil prices dragged down Canada’s main stock in­dex to its low­est point this year, as U.S. mar­kets also plunged into the red.

The S&P/TSX com­pos­ite in­dex fell 139.21 points to 15,955.51, with en­ergy stocks lead­ing the broad-based de­cline. The last time the TSX closed be­low 16,000 was Dec. 6.

In New York, the Dow Jones in­dus­trial av­er­age lost 362.59 points to 26,076.89. The S&P 500 in­dex was down 31.10 points to 2,822.43 and the Nas­daq com­pos­ite in­dex gave back 64.02 points to 7,402.48. Health-care com­pa­nies were the big­gest losers on Tues­day, as in­sur­ers, drug­mak­ers and dis­trib­u­tors slumped fol­low­ing news that Ama­zon was team­ing up with JPMor­gan Chase and Berk­shire Hath­away on a new ven­ture. The Cana­dian dol­lar closed at an av­er­age trad­ing value of 81.12 cents US, up 0.05 of a U.S. cent. In com­modi­ties, the March crude con­tract fell US$1.06 to US$64.50 per bar­rel and the March nat­u­ral gas con­tract was up three cents to US$3.19 per mmBTU.

The April gold con­tract was down US$5.10 to US$1,340.00 an ounce.
