(AP) Optimism that the world economy is getting better is pushing the euro to its highest level against the dollar in nine months.


Traders sold the yen, pushing it to its lowest point against the dollar in over two years, after Japan announced a $224 billion stimulus package to boost its economy.


On Thursday, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said he expects the economy in the 17-country bloc that uses the euro to recover slightly in late 2013.


The euro jumped to $1.3365, its highest point against the dollar since April 3, 2012. The euro was worth $1.3254 late Thursday.


The dollar rose to 89.434 Japanese yen, its highest point against the dollar since June 28, 2010.
