LONDON : Oil fell to a three-week low below $114 a barrel on Thursday, hit by weak euro zone economic data dampening the prospect of an early recovery and concern the U.S. Federal Reserve might end its stimulus programme sooner than thought. The drop extended Brent crude’s largest one-day slide in 2013 on Wednesday, alongside declines in other commodities and equities. Rumours that a hedge fund was liquidating positions also had helped pressure prices, although there was no evidence of liquidation by any specific fund.
