TORONTO Oct 3 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index finished a turbulent week in negative territory on Friday as weak energy shares weighed on the market despite the passage of a multibillion-dollar Wall Street bailout package by U.S. lawmakers.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 93.87 points, or 0.86 percent, to unofficially close at 10,806.67. Earlier in the day, it had soared more than 400 points ahead of the U.S. bailout vote. (Reporting by Wojtek Dabrowski; editing by Peter Galloway)
