 TORONTO, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index shot
higher at the open on Thursday, after a string of lower closes,
as a rise in commodity prices helped boost shares of Barrick
Gold ABX.TO and its gold-mining peers.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 115.87 points,
or 1.07 percent, to 10,921.20 at the open.
