The greenback was supported by yesterday's comments by the Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen. She said in a speech at the University of Massachusetts on Thursday that she expects that the Fed will start raising its interest rates by the end of the year, followed by a gradual pace of interest rate hikes.
"Most of my colleagues and I anticipate that it will likely be appropriate to raise the target range for the federal funds rate sometime later this year," she said.

The Fed chairwoman also said that the slowdown in the global economy is not significant not to raise interest rates this year.
