TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The yen and the Swiss franc strengthened on Wednesday after Pakistan shot down two Indian jets, sending investors out of riskier markets into safer havens.

The Japanese currency rose to a one-week high of 110.38 per dollar after Pakistan downed the jets a day after Indian warplanes struck inside Pakistan for the first time since a war in 1971.

“So far market reaction in major currencies has been relatively limited as tensions between the two countries had already been high. Focus is on whether the conflict shows signs of escalating,” said Kyosuke Suzuki, director at Societe Generale in Tokyo.
