TORONTO, March 16 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index was little changed shortly after the open on Monday as optimism that the U.S. banking sector is becoming stabilized offset weakness in commodity prices.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 3.73 points at 8,307.12. It started the day down 24.46 points, or 0.29 percent, at 8,278.93. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by Peter Galloway)
