TORONTO, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index eked
out a slight gain on Tuesday, as gains in bank stocks offset
sharp falls in resource-related shares after U.S. Federal
Reserve chief Ben Bernanke warned that uncertainty over a
looming "fiscal cliff" was damaging growth.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 ended up 5.88 points, or 0.05 percent, at 12,046.28.
It had traded in negative territory for most of the session.
