Dollar Ends Week Relatively Subdued

The US dollar ended this week’s mostly flat due to the mixed minutes of the latest meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee. The greenback was far from being the weakest currency, though, as the Great Britain pound logged even bigger losses, mostly due to politics.

The sterling did not even attempt to rise against such currencies as the euro and the Swiss franc.
