TORONTO, July 27 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
touched a three-week high on Friday, led by financial and
resource shares, as risk sentiment was boosted by fresh hopes
that major central banks in the U.S. and Europe will move to
help the struggling global economy.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 130.23 points, or 1.1 percent, at 11,769.98.
The index was at its highest level since hitting 11,894.81 on
July 5.
