    Euro edges off eight-week lows ahead of ECB meeting

    By Tommy Wilkes LONDON (Reuters) - The euro edged off eight-week lows on Thursday as traders readied for a European Central Bank meeting, when investors will be searching for any signals about when the bank will begin unwinding its stimulus. The single currency rose 0.1 percent to $1.2168 but remains 2-1/2 cents off levels hit only last week, after a bounce in U.S. Treasury yields fired up dollar buying and encouraged some to question whether the euro's rally since last year had run out of steam. The ECB decision is due at 1145 GMT and president Mario Draghi will begin his press conference at 1230.
