CANADA STOCKS-TSX flat after mixed economic data

Wednesday, 3 Oct 2012 | 9:53 AM ET

TORONTO, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index was little changed in early trade on Wednesday, as better-than-expected U.S. private sector jobs data and a conviction that Spain will eventually request financial aid was offset by signs the global economic slowdown may be worsening.

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

turned negative shortly after the start, falling 2.49 points to 12,388.74.
