TORONTO, July 4 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index was
slightly higher in volatile early trade on Wednesday as
financial shares rose, offsetting losses in resource stocks, on
hopes for more monetary stimulus from central banks to help
counter the effects of the euro zone crisis. 
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 rose 0.25 of a point to 11,849 shortly after opening
lower. Activity was subdued with U.S. markets closed for the
Independence Day holiday.
