China kept up its hostile rhetoric with the United States on Friday, saying through the official China Daily that US protectionism would hurt its own economy.

Rising trade tensions between the U.S. and China continues to remain a prominent theme with neither side showing any signs of backing down.

The dollar index, which tracks the USA dollar against six major currencies, fell 0.22 per cent.
