TSX futures fall as weaker bullion prices weigh | SaltWire

(Reuters) – Futures for Canada’s main stock index fell on Wednesday, dragged lower by gold stocks as bullion prices weakened on a firmer dollar, while investors awaited the U.S. Federal Reserve policy statement for clarity on monetary stimulus.

Spot gold was down 0.8% as concerns over the passage of a U.S. stimulus package weighed on the metal’s appeal.

March futures on the S&P/TSX index were down 0.73% at 7:00 a.m. ET.
