TORONTO, July 19 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
advanced for the fifth straight session on Thursday, led upward
by energy and mining shares, but gains were limited as weak U.S.
data and a spike in Spanish borrowing costs stoked concerns
about the global economy.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 86.55 points, or 0.7 percent,
at 11,665.70. At its peak, it touched 11,674.37 points -- its
highest level since July 10.
