 TORONTO, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
opened higher on Monday, propelled by a reassuring pledge from
the Group of 20 to keep economic stimulus measures in place
until a recovery is intact.
 That boosted appetite for risk, which helped push up oil
and gold prices. The resource-laden S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE rose 115.05 points, or 1.02 percent, to 11,365.47 at
the open.
