Euro extends gains vs dollar, hits session high

NEW YORK, March 15 (Reuters) - The euro extended gains versus the dollar to hit a session high on Friday after data on New York state's manufacturing sector came in below expectations.

Traders said the data likely prompted some profit-taking on the dollar's recent gains.

The euro rose as high as $1.3098, up 0.6 percent on the day, compared with $1.3058 before the release.

The dollar was last at 96.01 yen, down 0.1 percent on the day, compared with 96.10 yen earlier.
