The euro has been weighed down by sluggish industrial output data of Germany, Europe' s largest economy, raising concerns over a slowdown in the euro zone's economic growth.
Industrial output fell by 1.9 per cent in November last year, the German Federal Statistics Office said on Tuesday, in opposite to previous market expectations of an 0.3-per cent increase and marking a third straight monthly fall.
The dollar index, which measures the greenback against six major peers, increased 0.25 per cent at 95.9044 in the late trading.
