TORONTO, May 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
recorded its fourth straight gain on Tuesday as strength in
financial and consumer discretionary stocks, following comments
from central banks indicating their support for growth, offset
declines in gold producers.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 10.19 points, or 0.08 percent,
at 12,464.11. Seven of the 10 main sectors on the index were
higher.
