CANADA STOCKS-TSX slumps to 6-month low as resource stocks slide

TORONTO, June 14 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index slumped on Wednesday to its lowest close in six months as a drop in crude oil prices pressured energy shares, while the materials group also lost ground as a Federal Reserve interest rate hike weighed on gold prices.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 209.62 points, or 1.36 percent, at 15,170.13. Eight of the index’s 10 main groups ended lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; editing by Diane Craft)
