TORONTO Aug 10 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index fell at the open on Tuesday as commodity prices eased after weaker-than-expected import data from China and the U.S. dollar strengthened, with investors cautiously awaiting a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting on monetary policy later in the day.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE opened down 9.49 points, or 0.08 percent, at 11,854.07 before extending its decline. (Reporting by Claire Sibonney; editing by Peter Galloway)
