CANADA STOCKS-Energy, financials knock down TSX

TORONTO, April 7 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index finished down more than 2 percent on Tuesday, led lower by heavyweight energy and financial issues.

Global toxic asset concerns shook shares of banks and insurers, while oil prices fell nearly 4 percent and pulled down the energy group.

The S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE unofficially closed down 184.31 points, or 2.04 percent, at 8,831.86. All 10 of the TSX’s main sectors were lower. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
