Euro slips versus dollar after weak German data  NEW YORK: The euro edged lower against the dollar on Wednesday, pressured by soft German economic data, but losses were limited by hopes the European Central Bank may soon take action to lower Spanish and Italian borrowing costs.

The euro fell 0.4 percent to $1.2355, after hitting a one-month high of $1.2443 on ...
