TORONTO, July 14 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index barely gained for a second straight session on Thursday, adding to an 11-month high as heavyweight banking stocks gained after U.S. bank JPMorgan Chase reported strong loan growth and rising oil prices boosted energy stocks.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 20.72 points, or 0.14 percent, at 14,514.52. Six of its 10 main sectors ended higher. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Jonathan Oatis)
