 TORONTO, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Currency swings played a big
role on Friday in pushing Toronto's main stock index to its
first lower close this week.
 A higher Canadian dollar, brought on by a surprisingly
healthy jobs report, created discomfort for exporters, while a
surge by the U.S. dollar put resource issues under pressure.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed
down 47.47 points, or 0.41 percent, at 11,437.04.
