TORONTO, April 30 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rallied to its highest level in more than five months on Thursday, aided by higher oil prices and a generally more upbeat view on the global economy.

At 10:18 a.m. (1418 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 152.01 points, or 1.6 percent, at 9,568.32, its highest level since Nov. 11.

Eight of the TSX's indexes were higher, led by the weighty financials and energy groups. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
