TORONTO, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index advanced on Monday, tracking world stocks higher, after a merger between two big banks in Greece and a rebound in U.S. consumer spending boosted appetite for riskier assets.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE closed up 177.34 points, or 1.44 percent, at 12,504.85. All 10 of the index's main groups were higher, with the energy and financial sectors leading the rally. (Reporting by Trish Nixon; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
