The euro was underpinned by generally upbeat June final manufacturing PMI prints, with only Germany missing expectations by a slight margin. However eurozone inflation and unemployment data had little impact on the EUR/USD. The EUR/USD was last up 0.2% at the 1.3040 area.

USD/JPY rose to a 4-week high of 99.72 before easing to the 99.60 area, where it records a 0.4% gain, while the GBP/USD is only slightly higher at the 1.5520 zone despite a positive UK PMI reading. The Antipodean currencies are among the best performers, with AUD/USD hovering around 0.9200.
