CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens flat as commodities drop

 TORONTO, July 13 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
opened flat on Monday as a slide in oil and commodity prices
weighed on the resource-heavy index and more than offset the
boost offered by a rise in financial shares.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 2.84 points
at 9,744.29 at the open. Four of the TSX's 10 sectors were
lower, led by a 1.2 percent drop in the mining-laden materials
group and a 0.85 percent skid in the energy sector.
 The financial group, which accounts for about 30 percent of
the TSX, was up 0.59 percent.
