The greenback selling pressure seems to have abated for the time being, with the key US Dollar Index (DXY) bouncing off 9-month lows and is currently hovering around the 95.40-50 region.
The prospect for shifts in monetary policy stance by the European Central Bank and the Bank of England continued weighing on the buck through early Asian session on Friday.

The recent comment by the ECB President Mario Draghi, indicating that the central bank could soon start to unwind its quantitative easing program drove the EUR/USD pair to 14-month highs.
This coupled with BOE Governor Mark Carney's remarks that some removal of monetary stimulus is likely to become necessary provided a boost to the GBP/USD pair, which eventually dragged DXY to its lowest level since Sept. 2016.
Even an upward revision of the first-quarter US economic growth, released on Thursday, did little to provide any immediate respite for the buck.
However, a continuous upsurge in the US Treasury bond yields, with the 10-yr benchmark yield holding near multi-week highs seems to have extended some support on the last trading day of the week.
