The dollar rose to its highest in a month versus a currency basket on Friday, as traders sought the safe haven of the greenback on growing risk aversion and as the euro fell to one-month lows.

The dollar .DXY rose to 83.055, its highest since July 22, as European stocks traded with losses of around 0.6 percent .FTEU3 and U.S. stock futures pointed to a negative open .SPc1.

A string of disappointing U.S. data led to falls in equity markets, while the euro was weighed by comments from ECB's Weber, who said unlimited liquidity measures should be extended beyond year-end.
