WINNIPEG, January 2 (CNS) - The TSX cruised to a new record high on the first day of the New Year.

The Canadian dollar settled on Tuesday at US$0.7989 cents or C$1.2517, compared to Friday's North American close of US$0.7971 or C$1.2545.

The loonie took strength from gains in gold and natural gas.
