NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Canadian stocks rose on Thursday, posting their third straight day of gains, tracking a rally on Wall Street and in crude oil prices, which received a boost after news of an attack on an oil pipeline in Nigeria.

The benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index rallied 260 points, or 2.6%, to 10,361.

Advancing shares topped decliners by 933 to 535, while 267 issues were unchanged.

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA +0.36% gained 172 points, or 2%, to finish at 8,472. U.S. stocks received a boost from consumer-related stocks and with healthcare stocks rallying after media reports said Senate negotiators had cut the price-tag of a health-care reform bill.

Crude oil futures topped $70 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange after militants attacked a key pipeline in Nigeria, the fifth largest oil exporter to the U.S. The market also remained supported by government data that showed a bigger-than-expected drop in U.S. inventories of crude oil.
