CANADA STOCKS-Financials lead broad TSX rise

TORONTO, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index firmed on Monday in a broad advance led by financial shares, which were supported by a better-than-expected quarterly profit at Citigroup and an acquisition by Royal Bank of Canada (RY.TO).

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE gained 58.94 points, or 0.47 percent, to unofficially close at 12,668.01. Nine of the 10 TSX sectors rose, with financials up more than 1 percent. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
