The U.S. dollar traded mixed against the most major currencies after the release of the weaker-than-expected U.S. personal spending data. The U.S. Commerce Department released personal spending and income figures on Friday. Personal spending rose 0.1% in September, missing expectations for a 0.2% gain, after a 0.4% increase in August. It was the smallest increase since January.

Consumer spending makes more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity. Consumer spending grew 3.2% in the third quarter, after a 3.6% increase in the second quarter.

This data suggests that American consumers were cautious due to a slowdown abroad.

Personal spending was partly driven by higher demand for durable goods and services. Spending on durable goods rose 0.8% in September, while spending on services increased by 0.4%.

The saving rate climbed to 4.8% in September from 4.7% in August.

Personal income increased 0.1% in September, missing expectations for a 0.2% rise, after a 0.4% gain in August. It was the smallest rise since March.

The personal consumption expenditures (PCE) price index excluding food and energy rose 0.1% in September, missing forecasts of a 0.2% increase, after a 0.1% gain in August.

On a yearly basis, the PCE price index excluding food and index remained unchanged at 1.3% in September.

The PCE index is below the Fed's 2% inflation target. The PCE index is the Fed's preferred measure of inflation.

The euro traded higher against the U.S. dollar after the positive economic data from the Eurozone. Eurostat released its consumer price inflation data for the Eurozone on Friday. The preliminary consumer price inflation in the Eurozone rose to an annual rate of 0.0% in October from -0.1% in September, in line with expectations.

The preliminary consumer price inflation excluding food, energy, alcohol, and tobacco to an annual rate of 1.0% in October from 0.9% in September. Analysts expected the inflation to remain unchanged.

Food, alcohol and tobacco prices were up 1.5% in October, non-energy industrial goods prices gained 0.4%, and services prices climbed 1.3%, while energy prices dropped 8.7%.

Eurozone's unemployment rate declined to 10.8% in September from 10.9% in August. It was the lowest reading since January 2012.

The Canadian dollar traded higher against the U.S. dollar after the release of the Canadian GDP data. Canada's GDP growth rose 0.1% in August, in line with expectations, after a 0.3% gain in July.
