TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar inched up against the yen on Thursday as stocks bounced back from a sell-off triggered by an escalating U.S.-China trade dispute.

The greenback was 0.15 percent higher at 106.930 yen, having pulled higher from a low of 105.990 set the previous day.

The yen, often sought in times of market turmoil and political tensions, had rallied as Wall Street shares initially tumbled on Wednesday after China’s swift move to impose retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods.

 But a comeback by U.S. equities helped the dollar bounce, as trade war concerns calmed somewhat after President Donald Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the administration was in “negotiation” with China, and not engaged in a trade war.
