TORONTO Oct 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index extended its rally to a fourth session on Wednesday, helped by solid gains among beaten-down energy and mining stocks even as oil prices fell in volatile trade.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 221.09 points, or 1.62 percent, at 13,868.35. Nine of the 10 main sectors rose. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
