TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell on Wednesday, pulling back from a fresh 19-month high the previous day, as lower oil prices weighed on energy stocks, while financials also lost ground as investors braced for the Federal Reserve interest rate decision.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index was down 23.19 points, or 0.15 percent, at 15,362.08, shortly after the open. Six of the index's 10 main groups were lower.
