FOREX-Euro jumps vs dollar to highest since January 2015 after ECB's Draghi's speech

NEW YORK, Aug 25 (Reuters) - The euro soared to its highest level in more than two years against the dollar on Friday after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi did not express concern about a strong euro zone currency, as some analysts had expected

Draghi, in his speech at the Jackson Hole, Wyoming, central banker’s conference, instead focused on other aspects such as solid global recovery.

The euro hit a high of $1.1940, its strongest level since January 2015. It was last $1.1922, up 1 percent on the day. (Reporting by Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss; editing by Diane Craft)
