TORONTO Jan 18 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index slid further into negative territory on Friday, falling more than 100 points, after an economic stimulus package intended to stave off a possible U.S. recession failed to reassure investors.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 110.70 points, or 0.87 percent, at 12,684.93 points.
