The dollar was largely steady against other major currencies on Friday but set for its best week in a month thanks to a stronger tone to economic data.

Sterling, which has taken a beating from renewed concern over a hard Brexit, was set for its worst week in over two years against the greenback. Against the euro, the pound was poised for its largest weekly loss since July 2017.

Trade was generally subdued ahead of the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

A final reading of U.S. economic growth in the third quarter, due out later, was expected to get some attention.

Data this week has fueled expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve is unlikely to cut interest rates again in the near future, bolstering the dollar.

The dollar index was a touch firmer at 97.41. It has recovered almost 0.9% from five-month lows hit last week and is up 0.3% this week, poised for its biggest weekly rise in a month.

The euro was flat at $1.11210, while the dollar was a touch firmer at 109.39 yen.
