CANADA STOCKS-TSX edges higher on strong gold price

TORONTO, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index got off to a wobbly start on Tuesday morning but managed to cling to a small gain on strong gold prices and stronger-than-expected U.S. retail sales data.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE rose 0.57 of a point to 12,150.43 at the open, and then turned briefly negative, weighed down by weak oil and base metals prices.

At 9:35 a.m. (1335 GMT) it was higher again, up 17.37 points at 12,167.23. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
