TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s main stock index dropped to its lowest in more than a week on Tuesday as volatile commodity prices hurt natural resource stocks, with gold-mining shares bearing the brunt of a widespread selloff.

The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 123.39 points, or 0.92 percent, at 13,348.83. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index were in the red.
