The U.S. dollar was mostly unchanged Friday, as investors looked ahead to a closely watched health-care vote in Congress, which could provide clarity into the ability of the Trump administration to pass its ambitious economic agenda.

The buck advanced against the pound and the yen but declined against the euro and was on track for its third straight weekly decline.

The ICE Dollar Index DXY, -0.03% which measures the dollar against a basket of six major currencies, was unchanged at 99.74, though it hovered near a seven-week low. The gauge is on track to post a weekly decline of about 0.5%, marking its third weekly drop in a row since the week ended March 10, according to FactSet data.
