(Reuters) - The dollar dropped on Thursday after data showed that headline consumer prices unexpectedly fell in June, which may make it more likely that the Federal Reserve will begin cutting interest rates in the coming months.

The dollar index was last down 0.42% at 104.51, and got as low as 104.38, the lowest since June 12. The euro reached $1.08935, the highest since June 7.

Against the yen, the dollar weakened 0.49% to 160.88.
