Greenback is at 2-1/2 week maximums

Greenback is at 2-1/2 week maximums

On Friday, the US currency was hovering over a two-and-a-half week maximums versus other key currencies, amid mounting optimism as for a crucial US tax reform plan. Additionally, the greenback was underpinned by the fact traders closely watched the publication of major American employment data a bit later in the day.

The US dollar was driven after on Thursday the US approved legislation to temporarily fund the American government through December 22, prior to a Friday midnight deadline. It powered expectations that the highly-anticipated American tax reform is going to be passed before the end of 2017.

Republicans welcomed negotiations with the House of Representatives on a key tax reform bill, indicating that lawmakers could come to a compromise on a final bill prior to a self-imposed December 22 deadline.

The common currency dived, with EUR/USD losing 0.20% showing 1.1749, which is the lowest reading since November 23.

GBP/USD stood still sticking to 1.3474. USD/JPY rose 0.34% hitting 113.47.
