TORONTO May 7 (Reuters) - The main index of the Toronto Stock Exchange gave up ground on Wednesday as strong oil prices failed to dissuade investors from trimming their holdings by taking profits.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 43.20 points, or 0.3 percent, to unofficially close at 14,371.10. (Reporting by Wojtek Dabrowski; editing by Renato Andrade)
