Sterling falls to 2-week low against firmer dollar
LONDON Nov 8 (Reuters) - Sterling fell to a two-week low against the dollar on Thursday as fresh talk that Spain is in no hurry to seek a bailout supported safe-haven demand for the U.S. currency.
The pound fell as low as $1.5940, its weakest since Oct. 24.
