TORONTO, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
climbed on Tuesday, lifted by strong economic signals out of
Europe and the United States as well as by comments from a
Federal Reserve official that data was still too mixed for the
U.S. central bank to detail its stimulus exit strategy.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed up 47.92 points, or 0.38 percent,
at 12,642.19 points. Six of the 10 main sectors on the index
were higher.
