Sluggish economic growth in eurozone heavyweights Germany and France weighed on the European single currency and the region's stock markets on Friday.
Official data showed France and Germany only narrowly avoided a new recession in the third quarter, while the broader 18-nation eurozone also faced anaemic growth.
"There is a clear message that much work still needs to be done to stimulate the flagging eurozone economy," said analyst Mike McCudden at online broker Interactive Investor.
"The euro will no doubt remain under pressure as investors anticipate fresh stimulus intended to drag the region out of the mire."
In late morning deals, the shared single currency dipped to $1.2463 from $1.2476 late in New York on Thursday.
Frankfurt's DAX 30 index of top companies edged up 0.04 percent to 9,252 points and the CAC 40 in Paris gained 0.22 percent to 4,196.98.
London's benchmark FTSE 100 index meanwhile fell 0.07 percent to 6,630.51 points compared with Thursday's close.
