 TORONTO, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
turned negative briefly on Thursday morning after poor U.S.
services sector data threatened earlier investor optimism that
a Greek referendum on the debt-riddled country's bailout
package would be killed.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE dropped just below the break-even line to 12,237.26,
after opening up 31.36 points, or 0.3 percent, at 12,273.12.
 At 10:20 a.m. (1420 GMT) the index had rebounded, up 84.91
points, or 0.7 percent, at 12,326.67.
