    EURO

    The euro advanced against the dollar, reversing its decline, after a report showed German investor confidence increased more than economists predicted this month to the strongest in 2 1/2 years.

    Europe’s common currency advanced 0.2 percent to $1.3339 at 10:06 a.m. London time, after earlier falling by 0.4 percent.

    The ZEW Center for European Economic Research in Mannheim said its index of investor and analyst expectations, which aims to predict economic developments six months in advance, climbed to 31.5 from 6.9 in December. That’s the highest since May 2010. Economists forecast a gain to 12, according to the median of 39 estimates in a Bloomberg News survey.

    The euro touched the highest level against the dollar in 14 months as the European Central Bank’s balance sheet contracted while the Federal Reserve said it would continue pumping money into the U.S. economy.

    The 17-nation currency gained for a second week, its first back-to-back advance this year, amid data that showed Europe’s economy may be improving. The yen fell versus the dollar for a 12th straight week, the longest since at least 1971, amid bets Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will pick a new central-bank governor who will boost monetary stimulus. South Korea’s won slid versus all of its major peers. The ECB meets Feb. 7 on interest rates.

    The euro fell against the yen, following yesterday’s drop which was the biggest since June, amid corruption allegations against Spanish Premier Mariano Rajoy and uncertainty ahead of Italian elections this month.

    The 17-nation currency halted this year’s climb against the dollar before European Central Bank policy makers meet on Feb. 7. The yen rose against most major peers as investors bought haven assets after Asian equities slid. Australia’s dollar fell after the central bank kept interest rates unchanged while saying the inflation outlook allows scope further for easing.

    The euro fell versus the dollar and yen as European Central Bank policy makers led by Mario Draghi prepare to meet tomorrow amid political turmoil in Spain that threatens to deepen the debt crisis gripping the currency bloc.

    The 17-nation euro slid against most of its 16 major peers as Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy faced opposition calls to resign amid contested reports of corruption in his party. The euro area’s third-largest economy is scheduled to auction debt due between 2015 and 2029 tomorrow. The yen weakened to 94 per dollar for the first time since May 2010 on speculation Japan’s government will select a new central bank chief committed to ending deflation.

    The euro slid to a three-week low against the dollar after a report showed Europe’s recession deepened more than economists forecast last quarter, sapping demand for the region’s assets.

    The 17-nation currency dropped for a third day versus the yen as separate data showed gross domestic product shrank in both Germany and France. The yen rose against most of its major counterparts as Russia’s finance minister said Group-of-20 nations should take a stronger stance against currency manipulation. New Zealand’s dollar climbed to a 17-month high after manufacturing expanded. The euro has still strengthened 4.6 percent against the dollar in the past three months.

    Lars Seier Christensen, co-chief executive officer of Danish bank Saxo Bank A/S, said the euro’s recent rally is illusory and the shared currency is set to fail because the continent hasn’t supported it with a fiscal union.

    “The whole thing is doomed,” Christensen said yesterday in an interview at the bank’s Dubai office. “Right now we’re in one of those fake solutions where people think that the problem is contained or being addressed, which it isn’t at all.”

    The euro rose for a second day versus the dollar before data that economists said will show consumer confidence in the 17-nation currency bloc improved.

    The yen strengthened after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said it’s become less necessary for his nation to buy foreign debt. New Zealand’s dollar plunged after the central bank said it’s prepared to intervene in markets to weaken its currency. The South Pacific nation is the latest in a string of countries from South Korea to Brazil warning their currencies are too strong even as Group of 20 nations pledge to refrain from competitive devaluation.

    The euro declined below $1.32 for the first time in six weeks after an industry report showed services and manufacturing in the region shrank at a faster pace in February than economists forecast.

    The 17-nation currency fell for a third day versus the yen on speculation the European Central Bank will have to keep borrowing costs lower for longer to help spur a recovery. The Dollar Index (DXY) rose to a five-month high before the release of U.S. leading indicators and a regional manufacturing gauge that may add to evidence the economy is gathering momentum. The pound rose the most in two weeks against the euro.

    The euro rose, erasing a decline against the dollar, as Italian and Spanish bonds trimmed earlier losses and as some investors bought the currency after it fell to a seven-week low.

    The yen weakened against all 16 of its major counterparts on speculation Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will select Haruhiko Kuroda, an opponent of deflation, as the next central bank governor. The euro slid in earlier trading as Italy’s inconclusive election triggered renewed concern the region’s debt crisis will worsen.

    The euro traded 0.3 percent from a seven-week low against the dollar before Italy sells bonds today after the nation’s inconclusive elections sparked the biggest advance in sovereign yields in 14 months.

    The euro is heading for its first monthly loss since July as Moody’s Investors Service labeled Italy’s hung parliament “credit negative,” saying it puts the country’s structural and fiscal reforms at risk. The yen fluctuated as investors weighed the timing of new monetary stimulus in Japan.
