CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens higher on N.American data, Italy hopes
TORONTO, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index opened higher on Thursday as a drop in Italian bond yields eased fears of another euro-zone bailout and North American earnings and economic data boosted investor confidence.
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE opened up 29.81 points, or 0.3 percent, at 12,186.03. It then extended gains, rising 100.09 points, or 0.8 percent, to 12,256.31, recovering some ground after hitting the lowest point in a month on Wednesday.
