EMERGING MARKETS-Mexican peso creeps higher, Brazil's real slips

    Nov 22 (Reuters) - The Brazilian real weakened on Thursday
and hit its lowest in a week, while the Mexican peso was on pace
to clock its sixth gaining day in seven against a weaker dollar.
    The peso firmed marginally as a stronger euro and
questions about the U.S. Federal Reserve's 2019 interest rate
cycle weighed on the greenback, in a market thinned out by the
U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.
    Brazil's real continued its slide, dropping 0.4
percent after having logged its worst session in more than three
weeks on Wednesday.
    Stocks in Sao Paulo's Bovespa stock index rose after
two losing days led by consumer stocks.
