TORONTO May 11 (Reuters) - Strength in safe-haven gold shares pushed Toronto's main stock index into positive territory shortly after the open on Tuesday as euphoria around the massive euro zone rescue deal petered out.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was up 5.38 points at 11,953.28, after opening lower. The materials group, home to gold producers, was the only one of the index's 10 sectors to rise, up nearly 2 percent. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
