S&P/TSX Composite Index 1960–2012

The S&P/TSX Composite Index is the benchmark Canadian index, representing roughly 70% of the total market capitalization on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) with about 250 companies included in it. The Toronto Stock Exchange is made up of over 1,500 companies. In September 2014, the S&P/TSX Composite Index posted its all-time high, 15,657.63. The surge in oil prices in 2014 had led the S&P/TSX Composite Index to attain this peak level as both the Energy and Financial Sectors primarily got a boost. It replaces the earlier TSE 300 index.
