FRIDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro slipped below $1.16 on Friday for the first time in two weeks after Italy’s government agreed a budget seen by some investors as defying Brussels.

Political wrangling over the budget in heavily indebted Italy has put a lid on a recent revival in the euro’s fortunes against the dollar.

The single currency recorded its biggest one-day decline for nearly two months on Thursday as the battle over fiscal policy intensified in the euro zone’s third largest economy.
