Euro Extends Decline as Turkey Concerns Spread
Friday, 10 August 2018 23:38 WIB | CURRENCIES | Euro

EUR/CHF fell as much as 1% to 1.1343, the lowest level in almost a year.

Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index gained as much as 0.7%, but remained shy of its year-to-date high set June 21; the greenback was higher against most of its G-10 peers, though the yen held modest gains on the the flight to safety.

USD/JPY fell as much as 0.5% to 110..

EUR/JPY down 1.5% with pair trading at lowest level since late-May.
