 TORONTO, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index eked
out a small gain on Monday in a listless session in which a
rise in bank shares ahead of earnings later this week offset
the impact of lower gold prices on gold-mining stocks.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially ended up
24.66 points, or 0.22 percent, at 11,489.07. Earlier in the day
it rose as high as 11,586.22, a gain of 121 points.
 The last session of a month is often volatile as investors
scramble to make final adjustments to their portfolios.
