CANADA STOCKS-TSX slips as gold miners weigh

TORONTO, July 4 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index slipped in early trade on Tuesday as gold miners weighed despite the precious metal getting a safe-haven boost after a North Korean missile launch, while energy and financial stocks provided support.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 29.39 points, or 0.19 percent, at 15,152.80 shortly after the open. The Canadian market was closed for a public holiday on Monday, while U.S. indices are closed Tuesday.
