 TORONTO, Nov 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
turned positive on Monday morning after encouraging U.S.
economic data for September overcame weakness stemming from a
downgrade to Research In Motion RIM.TO.
 Pending sales of previously owned U.S. homes unexpectedly
rose to their highest level in nearly three years, while U.S.
construction spending made the largest gain in a year.
