CANADA STOCKS-TSX slides 1 pct as materials turn lower

TORONTO, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Toronto’s main stock index slid 1 percent on Wednesday morning as the materials group gave up early gains, pushing the TSX to its lowest level in nearly a week.

The market opened flat on broad weakness, with the pressure alleviated by strength in the materials group, home to major miners. But that heavyweight sector group soon lost more than 1 percent itself.

Combined with similar drops in the heavily weighted energy and financials sectors, the TSX index skidded to its lowest level since Nov. 4.
