finishing up 1 percent as U.S. economic data and stronger
commodity prices helped offset fears about the looming Greek
referendum on the euro zone’s bailout package.
Copper, oil, gold and base metals prices responded
positively to a U.S. Federal Reserve statement that offered a
moderately brighter economic outlook and appeared to leave open
the door for further easing.
TORONTO, Nov 2 (Reuters) – Toronto’s main stock index rose

Greek referendum vote on a euro zone rescue package.
