CANADA STOCKS-TSX climbs to 5-week high as financials, energy gain

TORONTO, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index posted its highest close in five weeks on Wednesday, boosted by gains for its heavyweight financial and energy groups as oil prices rose and the Canadian dollar retreated for a third straight day.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 63.53 points, or 0.42 percent, at 15,265.63. Eight of the index's 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by James Dalgleish)
