The Trade War comments and Trump’s European Trip Boosted the US Dollar
The US dollar was higher across the board against major pairs on Friday.
Trade war concerns rose heading into the weekend and the comments from US President Donald Trump during the week sparked a rally of USD buying.
Trump has been outspoken on NATO, trade and the Brexit deal while economic indicators and the US Fed have been supportive of the greenback.
