 TORONTO, July 27 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index opened lower on Wednesday as the U.S. political deadlock
over raising the debt ceiling and weaker-than-expected U.S.
data offset the boost that record high bullion prices gave to
gold-mining shares.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE opened down 1.45 points at 13,299.11 and then
extended losses.
