 TORONTO, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index sank
on Tuesday as mixed economic data and a gloomy outlook for U.S.
banks painted by a prominent analyst spurred doubt about
recovery and led to profit-taking.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed
down 153.68 points, or 1.42 percent, at 10,639.99, with eight
of its 10 main groups lower, led by a 2.5 percent drop in the
financials group.
