TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar held firm versus the yen on Friday, supported by quarter-end buying as well as an absence of any fresh escalation in trade-related tensions between the United States and its major trading partners.

Still, trade worries look set to dominate the market with traders increasingly worried about the impact of Sino-U.S. trade disputes on China’s economy.

The dollar firmed to 110.49 yen, having made gains for the last three sessions and nearing this month’s high of 110.905, helped by seasonal buying at the end of quarter and half-year.
