The US dollar
New York - XINHUA

The US dollar climbed against most major currencies on Friday as economic data from the country came out positive.

The U.S. Commerce Department reported on Friday that the advance estimates of U.S. retail and food services sales for April were 453.4 billion U.S. dollars, seasonally adjusted, an increase of 1.3 percent from the previous month, and 3 percent above April 2015.

The Producer Price Index for final demand rose 0.2 percent in April, seasonally adjusted, the U.S. Labor Department said Friday. Final demand declined 0.1 percent in March and 0.2 percent in February.

The index for final demand less foods, energy, and trade services moved up 0.3 percent in April following no change in March.

The upbeat data spurred market expectation for more than one interest rate-hike later this year. The dollar index, which measures the greenback against six major peers, was up 0.53 percent at 94.653 in late trading.

In late New York trading, the euro fell to 1.1305 dollars from 1.1378 dollars of the previous session, and the British pound dipped to 1.4360 dollars from 1.4447 dollars. The Australian dollar went down to 0.7265 dollars from 0.7326 dollars.

The dollar bought 108.65 Japanese yen, lower than 108.06 yen of the previous session. The dollar increased to 0.9757 Swiss francs from 0.9703 Swiss francs, and it inched up to 1.2947 Canadian dollars from 1.2828 Canadian dollars.
