CANADA STOCKS-TSX falls as oil price slide weighs on energy stocks

TORONTO, July 21 (Reuters) – Canada’s main stock index fell
on Friday, as its heavyweight energy group led a broad retreat
with oil prices sliding after a consultancy forecast higher OPEC
production in July and its biggest banks also lost ground.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index
unofficially closed down 81.51 points, or 0.53
percent, at 15,183.13. It edged 0.05 percent higher over the
week.
