TORONTO, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell into negative territory briefly on Friday morning, dragged down by weak bank and energy issues on disappointing U.S. consumer sentiment data.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell 1.59 points to 12,171.76. The index had jumped at the open, boosted by firmer commodity prices and strong quarterly results from technology bellwether Research In Motion RIM.TO. (Reporting by Jennifer Kwan; editing by Peter Galloway)
