NEW YORK, Feb 8 (Reuters) - The dollar on Friday clung to its
earlier gains against a basket of currencies, hovering at level last
seen in early January, after the Trump administration said China and
the United States will hold high-level trade talks in Beijing on Feb.
At 11:55 a.m. ET (1655 GMT), an index that tracks the greenback
versus the euro, yen, sterling and three other currencies was up
0.1 percent at 96.606. Earlier Friday, the ICE dollar index touched
96.693, the highest level since Jan. 3.
