TORONTO, Nov 7 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index dropped
on Thursday after a surprise move to cut interest rates by the
European Central Bank triggered a rally in the U.S. dollar that
weighed on commodity prices, hitting shares of energy and mining
companies.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 86.21 points, or 0.64
percent, at 13,294.20. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
