NEW YORK (Reuters) - The dollar briefly pared gains against a basket of currencies on Friday as government data showed U.S. employers added fewer workers in September but other aspects of the jobs report suggested further improvement in the labor market.
The dollar index <.DXY> was last up 0.10 percent at 96.871, which was not too far below its highest level in over two months set earlier Friday.
