TORONTO, July 31 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index
slipped on Wednesday to its lowest closing level in two weeks,
dragged by declines in materials and financials, as the market
digested a statement from the Federal Reserve that the U.S.
central bank will continue its bond buying.
    The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index
 unofficially closed down 95.11 points, or 0.76
percent, at 12,486.64. Eight of the 10 main sectors on the index
were in the red.
