TORONTO Nov 19 (Reuters) - The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index tilted lower at the market open on Wednesday and erased the previous session's gains, due largely to a slide in the heavily-weighted financial index.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 47.00 points, or 0.53 percent, to 8,788.73 at the market open. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; Editing by Peter Galloway)
