 TORONTO, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index
skidded to its lowest close in more than three weeks on
Thursday, hit by a mix of soft commodity prices and weak data
from the United States that raised concerns about the strength
of economic recovery.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially ended
down 322.26 points, or 2.83 percent, at 11,072.70. That marked
the TSX's lowest close since Sept. 9.
