CANADA STOCKS-TSX slips to near 2-week low as Potash shares dive
TORONTO, July 30 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell on Tuesday to its lowest in nearly 2 weeks after the breakup of a Russian-Belarussian potash joint venture sparked a selloff in Potash Corp shares on fears of a drop in the price of the fertilizer ingredient. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 87.29 points, or 0.69 percent, at 12,581.75. Seven of the 10 main sectors on the index were in the red.
