LONDON (Reuters) - The dollar index held near a three-week high on Friday and moves in currency markets were muted as traders waited for closely-watched U.S. non-farm payrolls data later in the session.
The consensus forecast for the data, due at 1230 GMT, is that about 650,000 jobs have been added in May.
At 0718 GMT, the dollar index was up 0.1% on the day at 90.542, having hit a new three-week high earlier in the session.
The Australian dollar, which dropped to its lowest since April on Thursday, held near these lows, at 0.76665, up just 0.1% on the day.
The New Zealand dollar likewise was stuck near the previous session’s lows, at 0.71545.
