TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose on Tuesday, clawing back earlier losses after North Korea had fired a ballistic missile over northern Japan, as energy and gold mining shares gained ground.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed up 30.67 points, or 0.2 percent, at 15,082.7. Six of the index's 10 main groups ended higher.
