TORONTO Oct 18 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rallied to a more than a two-week high on Tuesday as financials and resource stocks led a broad-based rally, aided by rising oil and gold shares.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 155.73 points, or 1.07 percent, at 14,752.25. Nine of the index's 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; diting by Steve Orlofsky)
