 TORONTO, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
crept into higher territory shortly after the open on Thursday
as a rebound in weighty banks and insurers helped offset the
drag weaker oil prices had on energy shares.
 At 9:39 a.m. (1339 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE was up 7.69 points, or 0.07 percent, at 11,449.71.
