The dollar nursed losses against a basket of currencies on Friday, on track for a weekly fall as investors focused on renewed economic strength in the euro zone.

The dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of six major rivals, was nearly flat on the day at 88.659, holding above a three-year low of 88.429 set one week ago but still down 0.4 percent for the week.

The yield on benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasuries reached a high of 2.797 percent early on Friday, probing its highest levels since April 2014.

 “It’s kind of counter intuitive. You’d think that with rates up, the dollar would be up, but investors are focusing their interest elsewhere,” such as further evidence that the European economy is picking up, said Jeff Kravetz, regional investment strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management.
