    FOREIGN EXCHANGE 
    NEW YORK - The euro fell to a more than seven-week low
against the dollar on Thursday after the European Central Bank
shocked investors by cutting interest rates and said that policy
will remain accommodative for as long as necessary.

fallen as low as $1.3295, according to Reuters data, matching
the low set on Sept. 16. Losses accelerated after it dropped
below strong chart support at $1.3462 from a trendline drawn
from lows hit in early July.

    COMMODITIES 
    GOLD
    NEW YORK - Gold fell to a three-week low on Thursday,
surrendering initial gains made after the European Central Bank

at 1504 GMT, having earlier risen as high as $1,325.31 an ounce.

bid at $7,145 a tonne, up 0.4 percent.

plentiful supplies and continued progress in talks between Iran

a.m. EST (1656 GMT). U.S. oil slipped 49 cents to $94.31
