Currencies: Dollar cautiously churns as looming G-20 meeting could induce trade jitters

The U.S. dollar largely stabilized Friday after touching five-week earlier lows in the session, a move that followed the guardedly optimistic economic view from the Federal Reserve this week and concern a Group of 20 meeting could stir protectionist trade developments.

The ICE Dollar Index DXY, +0.10% which measures the greenback against a basket of six other currencies, traded near 100.38, up less than 0.1%. It earlier hit 100.16, the lowest since February 9. The index is down roughly 1% for the week.

The WSJ Dollar Index BUXX, -0.12% which compares it against 16 rivals, rose less than 0.1% to 90.67.
