 Sept 29 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market index rose
sharply in opening trade on Thursday as threats to the global
economy appeared to fade a bit after the release of positive
U.S. economic data and a vote in the German parliament to
approve new powers for the euro zone's bailout fund.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE opened up 11.98 points, or 0.1 percent, at 11,597.85,
then extended gains more than 1 percent. All of the 10 index
sectors were higher.
