 TORONTO, Aug 20 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index rose
at the open on Thursday as resource-based stocks supported
tentative and modest gains.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE edged up 17.41
points, or 0.16 percent, to 10,704.24.
 The latest weekly U.S. jobless claims figures suggested a
stalled job market and fanned fears that the recovery would be
anemic, which weighed on market sentiment.
