Japan's Nikkei Jumps As Dollar Passes 100-yen Mark
An improvement in hiring at U.S. employers has been one of the key factors that pushed Wall Street up to record levels earlier this week.
Benchmark oil for June delivery was down 68 cents to $95.71 in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract lost 23 cents to finish at $96.39 a barrel on Nymex on Thursday.
The euro fell to $1.3002 from $1.3012 late Thursday in New York.
