TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar paused its climb on Friday, while the euro wallowed near its four-week low against the greenback after the European Central Bank signaled further monetary easing by the end of the year.
Overnight, the euro’s decline in addition to U.S. data helped lift the greenback to a near four-week high against a basket of currencies.
The ECB kept interest rates steady on Thursday but committed to contain the growing fallout from a second wave of coronavirus infections, saying it would hone its response by its December meeting, as widely expected by the market.
