TORONTO May 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index reversed a sharp fall and ended near break-even point on Tuesday as energy and financial shares trimmed losses and gold miners rose as bullion prices climbed due to safe-haven buying.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 0.94 of a point at 11,522.29. The index had fallen 2 percent earlier in the day as worries over Europe's banking sector and North Korea's threatened military action against the South pulled down bank, oil and gas issues.
