TORONTO, March 7 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index gave up 130 points immediately after the market opened on Friday, pushed lower by cooling commodities and U.S. jobs data that stoked recession fears.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 130.09 points, or 1 percent, to 13,230.35.
