The dollar and the Japanese yen rose on Friday as U.S. stocks rebounded to positive territory, although Asian equities remained in the red.
The U.S. dollar index that tracks the greenback against other currencies rose 0.2% to 96.41by 1:05 AM ET (05:45 GMT). The index hit a two-month high on Thursday.
However, risk sentiment seemed to have turned sour on Friday as Asian stocks and U.S. stock futures both traded lower.
Meanwhile the yen also gained as the USD/JPY pair traded 0.2% lower to 112.19.
