 TORONTO, April 5 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
edged higher after a soft start on Tuesday morning as energy
and consumer shares advanced.
 But the gain was brief as an earlier-than-expected interest
rate hike in China dragged on mining stocks, pulling down the
index's materials group 0.2 percent. Half of the index's 10
main sectors were lower.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE ticked up 0.15 of a point to 14,218.50, before
falling again.
