CANADA STOCKS-TSX nears 3-week low as U.S. data disappoints
TORONTO, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell 2 percent to its lowest level in nearly three weeks on Thursday afternoon as lackluster economic data from the United States raised concerns about the strength of the economic recovery.
At 1:15 p.m. (1715 GMT), the S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE was down 227.78 points, or 2 percent, at 11,167.18. It was the TSX's lowest level since Sept. 11. (Reporting by Frank Pingue; editing by Peter Galloway)
