TORONTO, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index jumped
in early Thursday trading, driven by strong economic data from
China and Europe, as well as a gain in Barrick Gold Corp
 after the miner reported quarterly results.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 was up 125.27 points, or 1 percent, at 12,611.91
shortly after the open.
