The US Dollar Index (DXY), which tracks the greenback vs. a basket of its main rivals, is extending the drop and posts fresh multi-day lows in the mid-94.00s.
US Dollar looks to data, trade
The index is down for the second session in a row at the end of the week, coming down from yesterday’s fresh 11-month tops just beyond 95.50.
The selling momentum in the buck picked up pace in tandem with shrinking concerns on the US-China trade front following escalating tensions at the beginning of the week.
In the meantime, yields of the key US 10-year note are inching higher today, navigating in session tops around the 2.92% area.
Later in the NA session, Markit will publish its flash figures for the Manufacturing/Services PMI for the current month.
