 TORONTO, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
turned negative on Friday morning as a rising U.S. dollar cut
into commodity price gains.
 At 11:09 a.m. (1609 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE was down 3.79 points at 11,469.27. The index had
risen in early action, boosted by higher oil prices and a surge
in Research In Motion RIM.TO shares after the company
reported a stronger quarterly profit and an upbeat outlook late
on Thursday.
