CANADA STOCKS-TSX rises, supported by bank earnings and higher oil prices

TORONTO, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose on Tuesday, led by financial stocks after Bank of Nova Scotia reported better-than-expected third-quarter earnings, while higher oil prices supported energy stocks.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was up 30.54 points, or 0.21 percent, at 14,712.51, shortly after the open. Seven of the index’s 10 main groups were higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
