The greenback index fell .1 to 98.seventy nine, shedding about 1% soon after hitting a two-1/two-year higher this week. It is down .3% on the week, its major weekly decline because the week of Sept. 9.
“Should today’s NFP report verify that the U.S. financial system is losing its domestic desire toughness, greenback weakness experienced from Monday’s higher could broaden out, getting its most effective expression in short greenback/yen and extended euro/greenback,” Morgan Stanley strategists said in a notice, referring to the U.S. Labor Department’s non-farm payrolls report.
