  • Greenback has resumed recent strength, with the USD index closing in on the multi-month highs printed earlier this week at 93.191.
  • The data slate thins out headed into the close of the week, with Canadian retail sales and the flash Markit PMI data from the US the last few releases. There are no notable central bank speakers.
