CANADA STOCKS-Banks help TSX end up despite Bernanke warning
TORONTO, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index eked out a slight gain on Tuesday, as gains in bank stocks offset sharp falls in resource-related shares after U.S. Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke warned that uncertainty over a looming "fiscal cliff" was damaging growth. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index ended up 5.88 points, or 0.05 percent, at 12,046.28. It had traded in negative territory for most of the session.
