TORONTO, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index dropped
to a six-week low on Thursday after results from major banks
weighed on the financial sector and positive U.S. economic data
heightened expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve will scale
back monetary stimulus.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 104.52 points, or 0.79
percent, at 13,200.40. All of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
