Dollar index adds losses after U.S. CPI, retail data fall short


NEW YORK (Reuters) - The dollar extended its earlier decline against a basket of currencies on Friday as weaker-than-forecast data on consumer prices and retail sales in June raised doubts about U.S. economic growth and whether the Federal Reserve may raise rates again in 2017.

At 8:35 a.m. (1235 GMT), the index that tracks the greenback versus a group of six major currencies <.DXY> was down 0.36 percent at 95.385.
