The dollar extended losses against the euro on Thursday after data showed business activity in the U.S. manufacturing sector came in weaker than expected in June.

A separate survey from the National Association of Realtors showed contracts for pending sales of previously owned homes plunged a record 30 percent in May, far more than expected, after a popular tax credit expired at the end of the prior month.

The euro edged higher against the dollar to $1.2426 EUR= from $1.2419 before the report. The dollar was last at 87.33 JPY=, compared with 87.32 yen prior to the data. (Reporting by Nick Olivari; Editing by Theodore d'Afflisio)
