Dollar index falls to six-week low

LONDON, August 21 (Reuters) - The dollar index fell to a six-week low on Tuesday as persistent speculation the European Central bank will take action to ease Spanish and Italian borrowing costs knocked demand for the safe haven dollar against a range of currencies.

The dollar index fell to 82.040, its lowest level since July 4.
