CANADA STOCKS-TSX rallies on banks, Spain hopes
TORONTO, May 31 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rallied on Thursday, led higher by financial issues on strong second-quarter bank earnings and as oil and gold firms pared losses after a report of possible plans to help Spain deal with its banking crisis. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 78.58 points, or 0.7 percent, at 11,511.80. The index still fell 6.3 percent in May, its largest monthly drop since September.
