The U.S. dollar traded mixed against the most major currencies in the absence of any major economic reports from the U.S.
The euro traded lower against the U.S. dollar on comments by the European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi said in a speech in Frankfurt on Friday that the central bank is ready to use "all the instruments" to boost inflation in the Eurozone.
The ECB president pointed out that there are downside risks to the central bank's scenario.
"The downside risks to our baseline scenario for the euro area economy have increased in recent months due to the deterioration of the external environment. The outlook for global demand, especially in emerging markets, has notably worsened, while uncertainty in financial markets has increased," he noted.
The ECB Governing Council member Jens Weidmann said in a speech in Frankfurt on Friday that the low inflation in the Eurozone was driven by lower energy prices. He pointed out that the ultra-loose monetary policy could lead to risks.
"We need to be aware that the longer we stay in ultra-loose monetary policy mode, the less effective this policy will become and the more the attendant risks and side-effects will come into play," Weidmann said.
