 TORONTO, Nov 10 (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar firmed to a
session high on Thursday after Canada posted a surprise trade
surplus in September on energy exports. [ID:N1E7A90DQ]
 The Canadian dollar CAD=D4 rose to C$1.0177 versus the
greenback, or 98.26 U.S. cents, up from Wednesday's close at
C$1.0217 or 97.88 U.S. cents.
 The data bolstered an already stronger currency as global
stocks and the euro stabilized on hopes new governments being
formed in Italy and Greece would avert a euro zone break up.
