Amidst Iraq conflicts Dollar rises higher

The dollar edged higher against a basket of major currencies on Friday after violence in Iraq triggered a safety bid for the U.S. currency, while a slight rise in U.S. bond yields underpinned the move. Escalating insurgent conflict in Iraq resulted in a cautious mood, while renewed focus on the potential for more monetary stimulus in Japan and an uptick in U.S. Treasury yields also drove demand for the dollar.
