TORONTO (Reuters) - The main index of the Toronto Stock Exchange tumbled another 4 percent on Friday as the latest wave of panic swept through global equity markets, wiping billions of dollars more from investor portfolios and pushing commodity prices sharply lower.

The S&P/TSX composite index fell 382.12 points, or 3.98 percent, to unofficially close at 9,218.06.
