TORONTO, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened
higher on Tuesday, lifted by a rally in gold shares, which rose
with the price of the precious metal as investors speculated on
the moves the U.S. Federal Reserve might make as it begins a
meeting on interest rates.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 21.64 points, or 0.17 percent, at 12,837.55
shortly after the open.
