TORONTO, March 9 (Reuters) - Toronto's key stock index fell into negative territory on Monday in a back-and-forth session in which energy shares pushed the index higher, and bank and materials shares pulled it lower.

At 10:59 a.m. (1459 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 7.55 points at 7,583.92. It fell 1 percent at the open but then rebounded to a gain of more than 1.4 percent before falling again. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; Editing by Peter Galloway)
