TORONTO, May 10 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index was
sharply higher on Thursday, halting its May sell-off, as
resource firms were helped by healthier U.S. jobless claims data
that offset weaker-than-expected Chinese trade numbers.	
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 74.23 points, or 0.6 percent, at 11,749.24
shortly after the open. The index hit a 2012 low on Wednesday
and has fallen for six straight sessions.
