TORONTO Jan 30 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index fell more than 1 percent to a nearly two-week low on Monday, with losses broad based after a travel ban implemented by U.S. President Donald Trump triggered a rethink by investors of U.S. political risk.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed down 170.69 points, or 1.10 percent, at 15,405.12. All of the index's 10 main groups ended lower. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; editing by Diane Craft)
