TORONTO May 19 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rallied sharply higher on Tuesday, reclaiming most of last week's losses, as higher oil prices boosted energy issues and as it caught up with rises on U.S. stock markets on Monday, when the Toronto market was closed for a holiday.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 324.02 points, or 3.32 percent, at 10,086.87, with all of its 10 main groups in the black. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
