CANADA STOCKS-TSX slides 1 pct on weak resources, financials

TORONTO, Jan 19 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index fell 1 percent on Wednesday, weighed down by slumping commodity issues, as well as unexpectedly weak Canadian and U.S. economic data and by Goldman Sachs (GS.N) results.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE dropped 136.44 points, or 1.01 percent, to 13,422.76. The heavily weighted energy and materials groups were both down more than 1 percent, while financials fell 0.7 percent.

Nine of 10 main sectors were lower. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Rob Wilson)
