TORONTO, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index hit a
near 18-month high on Wednesday, led by gold stocks that gained
following a contradiction in the U.S. economy, as well as a rise
in Research In Motion Ltd on the day of its
much-awaited BlackBerry 10 launch.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 55.69 points, or 0.43 percent, at 12,886.25
shortly after the open. The index hit a high of 12,895.28.
