Dollar stability and anticipation of trade negotiations and job report

The dollar traded against major currencies on Friday amid optimism about the progress of trade negotiations between China and the United States.

The monthly US jobs report, which will be released later today, is expected to add 177,000 jobs in March.

Trump: Deal with China is not yet ready

US President Donald Trump said during a meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He that the trade deal with Beijing "is not yet ready." The US president said the agreement would be announced in the next four weeks, "perhaps more or less," adding that there was no "very far" way forward in the negotiations.

Trump stressed progress in the talks was "at a rapid pace" and that the deal had a "good chance" to do so. "If no agreement is reached, it will be difficult for us to allow China to trade with the United States." Trump pointed out that the issue of IP theft and "specific" tariffs still needed to be resolved, some of which would be discussed later in the day.

Xi calls in a letter to Trump to expedite the agreement

On the other side of the ocean, Chinese President Xi Jinping told his US counterpart Donald Trump in a speech delivered by Chinese Vice Premier Liu He: "I hope the economic and trade teams of both countries can conclude negotiations on the text as soon as possible." The deal must be based on the principle of "respect and mutual benefit".

Xi expressed the hope that relations between Beijing and Washington will continue to develop in a "healthy and stable" way, noting that such a course is in the interest of both Chinese and Americans. To do so, the Chinese leader noted, "strategic leadership is needed."
