TORONTO, April 21 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell 1 percent at the open on Tuesday, dragged down by concerns over gloomy U.S. corporate results and after the Bank of Canada cuts its key interest rate to an historic low.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 92.02 points, or 1.01 percent, to 9,034.13 at the open. Eight of the TSX's 10 subindexes were lower, led by a 3 percent skid in the influential financials index. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)
