 TORONTO, July 30 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
shot to a higher open on Thursday as a rise in prices for key
Canadian commodities oil and gold helped to support the
resource-heavy index.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 138.59 points,
or 1.33 percent, to 10,593.92 at the open. All 10 TSX sectors
were higher, led by a 2.3 percent advance in the mining-laden
materials group.
