TORONTO, March 10 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index climbed at the open on Tuesday as the resource-laden market got a lift from higher oil prices and as financials were supported by strength in U.S. banking stocks.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 120.18 points, or 1.59 percent, at 7,687.12. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson) ((jennifer.kwan@thomsonreuters.com; +1 416 941 8178; Reuters Messaging: jennifer.kwan.reuters.net@reuters.com))
