Dollar stands tall as payrolls come in to focus

The dollar looked set to post its best week in two months on Friday, buoyed by easing Middle East tensions and upbeat U.S. economic data as investors turn to crucial jobs figures due later in the day.

The greenback is 1.3% firmer on the yen for the week so far, and up 0.6% against a basket of currencies.

GBP/USD is trying to recover from a dovish speech by Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England. In a speech on Thursday, he said that the BOE has the equivalent of 250 basis points of easing space and that it may act “promptly.”
