    Sept 17 (Reuters) - European stocks fell from a one-month
closing high on Thursday after an underwhelming response to the
U.S. Federal Reserve's pledge to keep interest rates low for a
prolonged period.
    The pan-European STOXX 600  .STOXX  dropped 1.1% by 0710
GMT, on course to break its four-day winning streak.
    The U.S. central bank on Wednesday vowed to keep interest
rates near zero until inflation is on track to overshoot the 2%
target, as expected. However, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said an
economic recovery is expected to slow, requiring continued
support from further government spending.*:nL1N2GD2AW
    U.S. tech stocks fell the most on Wednesday, while their
European peers shed 1.6%. Banks  .SX7P , automakers  .SXAP  and
miners  .SXPP  were the biggest sectoral decliners in Europe,
down nearly 2%.
    Carmakers Volkswagen  VOWG_p.DE , Renault  RENA.PA  and PSA
Group  PEUP.PA  fell between 2.5% and 3% after industry data
showed new car sales fell by 17.6% in August.*:nS8N2F803N
     Property firm Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield  URW.AS  slumped
8.5% as it announced a 9 billion euro plan that includes capital
raise, to boost its balance sheet.*:nFWN2GD0K7
