TORONTO Nov 20 (Reuters) - Toronto Stock Exchange's main index sank to its lowest level in nearly five years on Thursday afternoon as an earning warning from Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD.TO: Quote) pressured the financials group and the price of crude slid below $50 a barrel.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 602.67 points, or 7.1 percent, to 7,887.89. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Rob Wilson)
