    MORNING BELL: Dollar edges up

    The U.S. dollar edged up against most other major currencies Friday on data pointing to sluggish overseas economic growth, while the Australian dollar sagged to a six-year low after a Chinese manufacturing gauge fell to its weakest in 15 months.

    Global equity markets dropped on Friday and copper fell to a six-year low as weaker-than-expected data from China and the euro zone exacerbated concerns over global economic growth.

    Brent and U.S. crude oil futures settled at their lowest since March and registered their fourth straight weekly decline.

    Weighed down by a global-commodity slump and wobbly stocks, Treasury yields finished lower for a second week on Friday, recording the largest two-week decline since March 27.
