TORONTO, Jan 20 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index plunged to its lowest since mid-2012 before paring some losses to end down 1.3 percent on Wednesday, after the country’s central bank decided against cutting interest rates and as oil prices plumbed new lows.
The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 159.13 points, or 1.33 percent, at 11,843.11. It had earlier hit 11,531.22, its lowest level since Aug. 3, 2012. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Phil Berlowitz)
