TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar rose on Friday to its highest level in five days as investors waited to see if U.S. economic growth figures do anything to interrupt its months of strength.
U.S. President Donald Trump has expressed displeasure over the dollar’s strength, ignoring a custom that U.S. leaders avoid openly interfering in financial markets.
But the currency has stuck stubbornly close to a one-year peak scaled last week.
