    The U.S. Dollar finished lower for the week, but a rally on Friday helped offer a ray of light for the Greenback.

    The U.S. Dollar strengthened against most major currencies after the government said the non-farm payrolls grew by 151,000 in October, exceeding pre-market guesses. The Labor Department also revised upward payrolls for August and September. The strong showing helped keep October’s unemployment rate at 9.6%.

    The strong showing from the jobs data report helped the U.S. Dollar recover some of its earlier losses particularly against the Euro and British Pound which suffered big losses. The fresh employment data helped give risky assets a boost, driving up demand for commodity sensitive currencies such as the Australian, New Zealand and Canadian Dollars.
