CANADA STOCKS-TSX dips with weaker technology; gold shares cushion losses

TORONTO, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Canada’s benchmark stock index dipped on Friday as a selloff in U.S. technology stocks spilled over to Canada’s technology sector, but defensive names such as gold stocks helped cushion losses.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down just 10.51 points, or 0.08 percent, at 12,763.99, after paring earlier losses. (Reporting by Fergal Smith, editing by G Crosse)
