 TORONTO, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell
on Tuesday as soaring European bond yields offset strong U.S.
retail sales and sparked fears of another recession in Europe,
leading financial and resource stocks lower.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE fell 7.05 points, or 0.1 percent, to 12,217.14 at the
open. The index briefly turned positive before falling again.
