 TORONTO, Oct 21 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index slid
hard late in the day on Wednesday as profit-taking hit
gold-mining shares despite higher gold prices and bank and
insurance shares also weakened.
 The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed
100.52 points, or 0.87 percent, lower at 11,437.60.
