CANADA STOCKS-TSX retreats as oil prices fall, U.S. yields climb

TORONTO, April 24 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index fell on Tuesday as lower oil prices weighed on energy shares, while investors worried about the prospect of higher global borrowing costs after the U.S. 10-year yield hit the 3 percent level for the first time in four years.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 75.06 points, or 0.5 percent, at 15,477.00. Eight of the index’s 10 main groups ended lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith Editing by Tom Brown)
