CANADA STOCKS-TSX drops 1 percent as commodities hit

TORONTO, Feb 2 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell on Monday as energy and materials stocks were pressured by weakness in underlying commodity prices and concern about the deteriorating global economy weighed on financials.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 88.00 points, or 1.01 percent, to 8,606.90, with nine of its 10 sectors in the red. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
