TORONTO, April 20 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index opened lower on Monday as falling oil prices pulled down its energy sector, while concerns about U.S. corporate earnings weighed on investor sentiment.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 120.61 points, or 1.28 percent, to 9,317.04 at the open. Eight of the TSX's 10 sectors were lower, led by a 3.5 percent drop in the energy group. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
