 TORONTO, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell
on Thursday, ending a four-day rally, as investors paused ahead
of a key U.S. jobs report on Friday, but strength in gold
stocks and strong earnings from Toronto-Dominion Bank TD.TO
helped offset losses.
 The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
.GSPTSE unofficially closed down 67.96 points, or 0.53
percent, at 12,700.74. Nine of the 10 main groups were lower.
