FOREX-Euro slips on doubts over effective ECB response

•, By Jessica Mortimer

The euro earlier hit a one-month high against the dollar, adding to Friday's gains on investor optimism the European Central Bank would step in and buy bonds to reduce high Spanish and Italian borrowing costs in coming months.
