The euro rose sharply against the dollar on Tuesday, boosted by relief among investors that Italy managed to sell government bonds to the market even though it was forced to pay record high auction yields.
Traders said speculation of good demand at the auction started to drive the euro higher ahead of the results, while buying by hedge funds also drove the single currency higher.
Italy sold 7.5 billion euros of three- and 10-year government bonds, close to the upper end of its target range.
