CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens higher as banks gain; Fed in focus

TORONTO, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose
on Tuesday, with gains in financial stocks offsetting weakness
in the gold-mining sector, as investors directed their attention
to the U.S. Federal Reserve's bond buying program ahead of a
policy meeting.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 9.49 points, or 0.07 percent, at 13,193.90
shortly after the open.
