 TORONTO, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
erased an early skid and moved into higher territory on Tuesday
as a rise in gold prices helped boost gold-mining shares, more
than offsetting weakness in financials.
 At 10:00 a.m. (1400 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE was up 4.12 points, or 0.04 percent, at 10,882.47.
 Earlier it had fallen as much as 126 points to 10,751.72 as
bank shares were unloaded due to concerns about the European
banking sector.
