TORONTO Feb 23 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell nearly 4 percent to its lowest closing level in more than five years on Monday, hit by lower commodity prices, weak domestic data and nagging concerns about U.S. banks.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 307.79 points, or 3.87 percent, at 7,642.20. Early in the session the TSX had rallied as much as 1 percent. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Rob Wilson)
