The U.S. dollar was little changed on Friday in Asia ahead of the release of non-farm payroll data, due later today, and a new round of Sino-U.S. trade talks next week.
The U.S. Dollar Index traded 0.01% higher to 98.553 by 1:19 AM ET (05:19 GMT).
Data on Wednesday showed that U.S. private sector hiring cooled in September, the latest indication that the trade dispute between Washington and Beijing is hurting the world's largest economy.
Sino-U.S. trade developments are expected to be in focus, as U.S. President Donald Trump said overnight that a delegation from China would go to Washington next week for more trade talks.
The safe-haven yen inched up against the U.S. dollar as stock markets in Asia traded lower. The USD/JPY pair last traded at 106.81, down 0.1%.
The AUD/USD pair and the NZD/USD pair gained 0.2% and 0.4% respectively.
