Dollar has 8th straight week of gains; U.S. stocks edge up By Reuters


By Caroline Valetkevitch

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The registered an eighth straight week of gains on Friday while global stock indexes ended slightly higher on the day ahead of key U.S. inflation data next week.

The ‘s weekly winning streak was its longest since 2014, bolstered by recent data suggesting the U.S. economy is still resilient. For the day, the index was nearly flat at 105.08.

In contrast, China’s ended its domestic session at its weakest since 2007 amid concern about China’s slowing economy.

Strong U.S. economic data this week have left some investors worried that even if the Federal Reserve leaves rates unchanged this month, they could remain high for longer than anticipated.

Investors are waiting for the U.S. Consumer Price Index reading for August, due Wednesday, especially with oil prices rising.

“The dollar has been higher on the back of obviously stronger U.S. data …, suggesting that the Fed perhaps has another rate hike before the end of the year,” said Quincy Krosby, chief global strategist at LPL Financial (NASDAQ:) in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Wall Street’s three major stock indexes ended barely higher, with shares of Apple (NASDAQ:) up just 0.3%. Apple had fallen in the last two sessions on news reports of China curbing iPhone use by state employees.

Longer-dated U.S. Treasury yields slipped as investors digested recent comments from several Fed officials, including some comments that underpinned the view the U.S. central bank may be able to pause in its rate hike cycle.

The yield on the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury note shed 1 basis point to 4.256%. The 10-year yield is up about 9 basis points for the week.
