TSX and the Greek bailout

The Toronto stock market was little changed Wednesday with traders still concerned that the eurozone still hasn't been able to agree on a vital batch of bailout money for Greece.

The S&P/TSX composite index was off 12.77 points to 12,033.51 while the TSX Venture Exchange rose 3.52 points to 1,245.82.

The Canadian dollar was up 0.08 of a cent to 100.35 cents US.

U.S. futures were slightly higher at the start of what could be a relatively quiet session as markets start to wind down for the American Thanksgiving holiday. New York markets are closed Thursday.

The Dow Jones industrials climbed 29.76 points to 12,818.27, the Nasdaq composite index was up 6.59 points to 2,9223.27 and the S&P 500 index added 1.78 points to 1,389.59.

European Union finance ministers ended a marathon, 12-hour session Tuesday still unable to agree on a deal to give Greece the next instalment of bailout funds.

It was the second consecutive meeting at which ministers couldn't agree on a deal.
