The U.S. dollar was higher against its major counterparts in the New York session on Friday, as the prospect of higher rates overshadowed optimism over a slowdown in the Federal Reserve's preferred measure of core inflation in November.

The annual PCE inflation slowed to 5.5 percent in November from an upwardly revised 6.1 percent in October. Economists had expected the consumer price growth to slow to 5.3 percent.

The report also showed personal income rose by 0.4 percent in November after climbing by 0.7 percent in October. Economists had expected personal income to increase by 0.2 percent.

Meanwhile, personal spending inched up by 0.1 percent in November following a 0.9 percent advance in October. Spending was expected to tick up by 0.2 percent.
