The S&P/TSX composite index nose-dived in initial trading as the price of oil collapsed and the loonie plunged against the U.S. dollar.

The collapse at the start of trading triggered circuit breakers on the stock market that temporarily put a halt to trading.

The drop in markets followed similar moves on stock markets in Europe and Asia that came after Saudi Arabia, Russia and other major oil producers failed to agree on cutting output to prop up prices.

The move rattled already volatile stock markets that have been falling amid concerns about the impact COVID-19 on the global economy.
