TORONTO Feb 25 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index opened slightly lower on Wednesday morning after a rally in the previous session, led down by weakness in financial services stocks.

After a delay of nearly 15 minutes in publishing data for the index, the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 5.02 points, or 0.06 percent, to 7,854.31.

Toronto Stock Exchange operator TMX Group Inc (X.TO: Quote) said on Wednesday there were no problems with its data feeds and said Standard & Poor's index values were not updating. S&P said it was investigating. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by Peter Galloway)
