TORONTO, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index dropped
for a second straight session on Friday, dragged lower by
worries about the Federal Reserve's plans to raise interest
rates and fears that Argentina's default might signal broader
regional instability.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 115.48 points, or 0.75
percent, at 15,215.26. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
