Toronto stock index falls 100 points after US data

TORONTO, Feb 5 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange’s main index dropped early on Tuesday after a report bolstered fears that the U.S. economy was weakening, and commodity prices weighed on resource shares.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 102.14 points, or 0.8 percent, at 13,156.02 after a report by the Institute for Supply Management showed the U.S. services sector contracted to a level not seen since the 2001 recession.
