The dollar was headed for its largest weekly drop for months against the euro, yen and franc on Friday, as investors anticipate rate cuts of almost 100 bps next year.

Other major currencies were also on track to gain this week. Treasury yields hovered around two-month lows, pressured by poor builder confidence and rising jobless claims.


BOJ governor Kazuo Ueda said that there are both positives and negatives to the weak yen’s impact, suggesting that there is still room for stimulus to stay at this point.
