    The dollar fell on Friday after Richard Clarida, vice chairman of the Federal Reserve, said that interest rates were near neutral, but indicated that a December rate hike is still possible. Clarida told CNBC on Friday that the Fed hasn’t raised rates too far or fast but that it’s too early to know if they should increase rates too far to hold back growth.
