TORONTO, July 19 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rose
early on Thursday, led by mining and energy shares, as strong
U.S. corporate earnings and hopes China would announce further
stimulus measures boosted risk sentiment, offsetting fears about
the euro zone's debt crisis. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 55.33 points, or 0.5 percent, at 11,634.48
shortly after the open.
