CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens lower as gold stocks fall after U.S. jobs report
TORONTO, July 5 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened lower on Friday as a robust U.S. jobs report weakened investor appetite for safe-haven assets such as bullion, causing a slump in gold-mining stocks. The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 32.43 points, or 0.27 percent, at 12,134.23 shortly after the open.
