(Repeats to cover additional alert)

LONDON, Jun 24 (Reuters) - The euro jumped broadly on Friday after a strong-than-expected reading of German business sentiment added to the view the German economy is continuing to improve, even as weaker peripihery economies struggle. The euro rose around 30 pips to $1.4239, but still traded 0.2 percent lower on the day. It edged up around 20 pips against sterling to a session high of 89.25 pence , trimming earlier losses to trade flat on the day. (Reporting by London Forex Team)
