TORONTO, July 27 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rose
on Friday, led by financial and energy shares, as risk sentiment
was boosted by U.S. GDP data that met expectations and hopes
that major central banks will move to help the struggling global
economy.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 40.29 points, or 0.3 percent, at 11,680.04
shortly after the open.
