TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar edged away from two-year highs on Friday after weak U.S. manufacturing activity data sparked worries that the trade conflict with China may hurt the world’s largest economy and affect the currency’s safe-haven status.
Against a basket of six major currencies, the dollar was down 0.2% at 97.686 in early European trade and 0.7% off a two-year high of 98.371 hit the previous session.
The fall followed overnight data showing manufacturing activity hit its lowest level in almost a decade in May, suggesting a sharp slowdown in U.S. economic growth was under way.
