October 17, 2011

Oct. 18 (Bloomberg) -- The euro pared early gains against the dollar and yen as Asian shares extended a global slump, curbing demand for riskier assets.

The 17-nation currency rose 0.2 percent to $1.3757 as of 11:36 a.m. in Tokyo from the close in New York yesterday, after earlier rising as much as 0.4 percent. The euro was up 0.1 percent to 105.68 yen.
