July 5 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index opened lower on Friday, as falling gold price dragged down materials stocks and a strong rebound in U.S. job growth in June drove investors to pare bets of an aggressive interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve.
At 9:35 a.m. ET (13:35 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 83.23 points, or 0.5%, at 16,505.62. (Reporting by Sruthi Shankar in Bengaluru)
