U.S. retail sales rose 0.9 percent, the largest increase since February..
The euro rose as high as $1.3097 from $1.3084 just before the release of the data. It was last at $1.3084, up 0.7 percent. The dollar, on the other hand, also briefly pared gains against the yen to 78.03 yen after the data. It was last 78.16 yen, up 0.7 percent.
