    TOKYO, July 15 (Reuters) - The dollar extended its gains and scaled a three-week high against the yen on Friday, after China's second-quarter gross domestic product and June activity data pointed to stabilisation in China's economy and bolstered risk sentiment.

    The dollar touched a high of 106.235 yen JPY= as at 0221 GMT, its highest level since June 24. The greenback was last trading at 106.19 yen, up 0.8 percent on the day.
