TSX pushes higher on golds, financials

TORONTO, Nov 25 (Reuters) – Toronto’s main stock index was
higher on Wednesday morning, as red-hot gold prices boosted
shares of resource issues, while financials were helped by
mostly healthy U.S. economic data.

Gold prices surged to record highs above $1,180 an ounce,
boosted by reports India may be interested in buying more
bullion from the International Monetary Fund, and by a weaker
U.S. dollar that fell against most major currencies [GOL].
