TORONTO (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index slid to its lowest level in more than a week on Tuesday as a pullback in commodity prices shook the resource-heavy index while shares of Scotiabank added pressure after it missed profit forecasts.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially ended down 124.91 points, or 1.09 percent, at 11,364.72.
