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. (Reporting by Trish Nixon; editing by Peter Galloway)
