CANADA STOCKS-TSX slips as materials and energy stocks lead retreat

TORONTO, June 7 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index fell on Wednesday as materials and energy shares retreated as prices for gold slipped under pressure from a strengthening dollar, and oil traded lower on worries over growing U.S. output.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index fell 25.43 points, or 0.16 percent, to 15,439.13 shortly after the open. Eight of the index’s 10 main groups were in negative territory. (Reporting by Solarina Ho; Editing by W Simon)
