TORONTO, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Canadian stocks fell for the
fourth straight day on Thursday, led by energy and financial
shares, as the European Central Bank followed the U.S. Federal
Reserve in pouring cold water on expectations of further
stimulus to boost the global economy.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 112.03 points, or 1 percent,
at 11,506.50. At one point the index touched 11,475.43, its
lowest since July 25.
