TORONTO (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index edged higher after a wobbly start on Thursday, driven by firmer gold stocks and other materials shares after some encouraging remarks by U.S. and European policymakers.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 51.90 points, or 0.43 percent, at 12,078.66. The index briefly turned lower shortly after the open.
