 TORONTO, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock market
index plunged 4 percent on Monday to hit a near one-year low,
mirroring U.S. stocks and the price of oil, as a downgrade of
the U.S. credit rating shook investor confidence globally.
 At 2:24 PM (1824 GMT) The resource-heavy Toronto Stock
Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 489.61
points, or 4.03 percent, AT 11,672.56.
