CANADA STOCKS-TSX rises as oil prices, bond yields climb

TORONTO, Aug 4 (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index rose on Friday to extend this week’s gains, helped by higher oil prices, which boosted energy shares, and a lift to bond yields after data showed stronger-than-expected jobs growth in the United States.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 66.01 points, or 0.43 percent, at 15,257.97. Eight of the index’s 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith)
