Euro sells off after report ECB considering corporate bond buys

NEW YORK, Oct 21 (Reuters) – The euro fell sharply against
the dollar on Tuesday after Reuters reported the European
Central Bank was looking at buying corporate bonds as soon as

asset-buying program the ECB began on Monday, which is aimed at
fostering lending to businesses in hopes of spurring growth.

After a week of wide currency market gyrations, investors
appeared unwilling to make fresh bets ahead of Wednesday’s U.S.
inflation data and Thursday’s European manufacturing reports
