1 Min Read

TORONTO, June 22 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell more than 4 percent on Monday, posting its lowest close in more than a month, as falling commodity prices shook the resource-heavy TSX just after investors had thought the worst was over.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 454.72 points, or 4.42 percent, at 9,833.23. All of the TSX's 10 main sectors ended down, led by a 6.45 percent drop by the energy group and a 5.89 percent selloff by materials. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Rob Wilson)
