The euro climbed half a percent on Friday after stronger than expected French business activity in June raised hopes that concerns about a widening slowdown in the eurozone in the second quarter may be slightly overdone.

With Germany flash services PMI data also beating forecasts, the single currency rose to the day™s highs at $1.1674. For the week it is poised to register a 0.5 percent rise, breaking last week™s fall.

Sentiment towards the euro was also boosted by a general increase in risk appetite across the board with Asian stocks up half a percent while high-yielding currencies such as the Australian dollar and the New Zealand dollar also posting chunky gains.

The euro™s bounce pushed the dollar lower against a broad basket of its peers with the greenback down 0.2 percent on the day at 94.58.

The greenback was little changed versus yen and was modestly higher at 110.14 yen, below a one-week high of 110.76 scaled the previous day amid lingering concerns over the trade dispute between the United States and China.
