TORONTO, April 14 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index dropped 1 percent on Tuesday afternoon as lower oil prices pulled down the energy sector, while profit-taking set in after the market's five-week rally.

At 1:55 p.m. (1755 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 92.48 points, or 1 percent, at 9,193.14. Eight of the TSX's 10 subindexes were in lower territory. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
