TORONTO, July 16 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
opened higher on Tuesday, led by gains in the financial and
materials sectors, as investors set their sights on Federal
Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's testimony on Wednesday to look
for clues about the monetary stimulus program.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 30.26 points, or 0.24 percent, at 12,558.61
shortly after the open.
