The USD/JPY pair, before trading at 110.13, climbed to 110.59, gaining 1.35% for the week, having performed a consecutive rise for three weeks.

Euro and dollar 0.84% lower last week

The EUR/USD traded, not far from Thursday's level the 1.1179 area, at 1.1213, trading for the week 0.84% lower. The U.S. dollar index stabilized at 95.29 while rising 0.8% for the week.
