CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as coronavirus fears grow

Feb 20 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index opened lower on Thursday, as gains in energy were offset by losses in most other sectors after a spike in the number of coronavirus cases outside China raised concerns about the global impact of the epidemic.

* At 09:30 a.m. ET (14:30 GMT), the Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 19.59 points, or 0.11%, at 17,905.77, retreating from Wednesday’s all-time highs.
