Euro Rises 0.3% Versus Dollar After German Retail Sales Increase

March 28 (Bloomberg) -- The euro appreciated against the dollar and erased a decline versus the yen after German retail sales unexpectedly rose in February.

Europe’s shared currency advanced 0.3 percent to $1.2813 at 7:06 a.m. London time. It was little changed at 120.71 yen after depreciating 0.5 percent earlier.

German sales, adjusted for inflation and seasonal swings, gained 0.4 percent from January, the Federal Statistics Office in Wiesbaden said today. Economists forecast a drop of 0.6 percent, according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey.
