(Corrects loss in the second paragraph to 218.67 points, or 2.42 percent)

TORONTO Feb 10 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell on Tuesday, breaking a five-day streak of gains, as energy and financial issues sank on skepticism about whether the U.S. bad-debt plan will be sufficient to bring health back to the U.S. financial system.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 218.67 points, or 2.42 percent, to 8,828.61. It was its steepest one-day percentage loss since Jan. 22. Nine of its 10 main sectors were lower. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
