CANADA STOCKS-TSX opens up on U.S. data, Spain hopes

TORONTO, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index opened slightly higher on Wednesday, extending gains from the previous session on hopes of a bailout request from Spain and after data showed more jobs were created in the U.S. private sector last month than analysts had expected.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index

opened up 7.63 points, or 0.06 percent, at 12,398.86, before modestly extending gains to 12,410.31.
