TOKYO (Reuters) - The dollar index against a basket of six major currencies rose to a seven-month high on Friday, getting a boost as the euro sagged after a cautious European Central Bank signaled it will keep interest rates at record lows well into next year.

The dollar index was up 0.3 percent at 95.074 .DXY after touching 95.108, its highest since November 2017.
