The dollar slipped on Friday against a basket of currencies, holding above a one-week low as a mixed report on the U.S. jobs market in August reinforced the view of a slowing expansion and the possibility of more interest rate cuts from the Federal Reserve.
Traders now await clues on the Fed™s next move after it embarked on its first rate cut since 2008 in July when Fed Chair Jerome Powell participates on a panel about the economy and monetary policy in Zurich, which begins at 12:30 p.m.
An index that tracks the greenback against the euro, yen, sterling and three other currencies was 0.19% lower at 98.223 after hitting a one-week low of 98.085 on Thursday. The dollar index is on track for 0.67% decline, its steepest weekly loss since June.
The greenback lost ground against its rivals as global tensions receded this week, most notably with China and the United States agreeing to high-level trade talks in October.
