CANADA STOCKS-TSX gains as improved risk-appetite boosts financials

TORONTO, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index, which had fallen for five straight days, rose on Monday after Hurricane Irma weakened and North Korea refrained from conducting a missile test, with financial shares and Tahoe Resources leading the rally.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 54.98 points, or 0.37 percent, at 15,040.30. Eight of the index's 10 main groups advanced. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Sandra Maler)
