TORONTO Feb 23 (Reuters) - Toronto's key stock index fell to its lowest level since October 2003 late in the session on Monday in a broad decline spurred by lower commodity prices, weak economic data and nagging concerns about U.S. banks.

At 3:52 p.m. (2052 GMT) the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 303.82 points, or 3.82 percent, at 7,646.17. Early in the session it had risen by as much as 1 percent. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
