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.
