TORONTO Aug 13 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index edged higher on Friday, as financial shares rose marginally, but energy and mining stocks fell with skittish markets still gauging the fate of the global economic recovery.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 4.65 points, or 0.04 percent, at 11,528.25 after retreating for three sessions.

The rise followed the market's weakest close in three weeks on Thursday, when the index fell 0.51 percent. (Reporting by Pav Jordan; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
