Following an upturn on the Thursday trading driven by China's reports, the US dollar rate has started sliding due to the released bullish minutes of the December meeting of European Central Bank, as reports mainstream media.

According to the report, it is possible that the European Central Bank will revise its future plans in early 2018, in case of further economic growth, with inflation coming even closer to the Board's target level. 

In particular, the euro-to-US dollar rate has strengthened to $1.2018, against $1.1948 at the close of the previous session.

ICE U.S. Dollar index fell 0.21%. WSJ Dollar index, showing US dollar value against 16 main currencies, dipped 0.08%.

The euro to Japanese yen also progressed to 134.14 (133.14 a day earlier), while US dollar to yen gained 111.63 by that time (111.44).
