The euro jumped to its highest level against the dollar in 17 months Wednesday, topping the $1.39 level as traders voted more confidence in the eurozone.
Analysts said that although eurozone industrial production dropped 0.2 percent in January from December, the pace marked an improvement and it was consistent with an economy picking up pace.
At 2100 GMT the euro was at $1.3904, compared with $1.3863 late Tuesday.
During trade it hit $1.3915, matching the 17-month peak reached last Friday.
