    TORONTO, April 2 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
slipped on Tuesday, pulled lower by gold stocks which took a
beating as the price of bullion tumbled, with investors
gravitating towards riskier assets following positive U.S. and
European economic data.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 13.04 points, or 0.10
percent, at 12,682.10. Seven of the 10 main sectors of the index
were higher.
