"Dollar down as consumer sentiment slides

The dollar fell against the euro on Friday after a gauge of consumer sentiment plunged to its lowest level since 1992, adding to fears that the U.S. economy may be slouching toward recession.

The euro pushed above $1.47 for the first time in nearly two weeks to trade at $1.4709, up half a percent from late Thursday, before easing to $1.4692. It traded around $1.4685 just before the Reuters/University of Michigan consumer sentiment data was released.

The dollar was also down half a percent against the yen at 107.40 yen, with most of those losses coming after the New York Federal Reserve's February manufacturing index posted its biggest monthly decline on record."
