The greenback continued to buck its traditional role as a safe-haven currency, falling with U.S. stocks overnight after an unexpected increase in weekly jobless claims. The British pound traded near an almost three-year high reached overnight, when it surged the most in more than a month, amid Britain's aggressive vaccination programme.
Oil prices move lower by up to 2% in early trade on Friday, adding to overnight weakness, on worries that refineries will take time to resume operations after the big freeze in the U.S. South, creating a gap in demand, while OPEC+ supplies were expected to rise.
