TORONTO, March 16 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index reversed a near 1 percent gain in volatile trading on Wednesday, declining for a third straight session as Japan's nuclear crisis and clashes in the Middle East weighed on investor sentiment, despite higher commodity prices.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 22.14 points, or 0.16 percent, at 13,524.82. (Reporting by Claire Sibonney; editing by Rob Wilson)
