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.
