TORONTO Nov 4 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index gained 3.1 percent on Tuesday morning, pulled higher by energy and materials issues, which advanced as oil firmed on supply cuts and metals prices rose on a weaker U.S. dollar.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 301.12 points, or 3.1 percent, at 10,022.38, climbing above the 10,000 level for the first time since Oct 21. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by Peter Galloway)
