TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The Japanese yen surged to a three-month high against the dollar on Thursday, with the Swiss franc at a one-month high as investors sought out the safe-haven currencies, fearing the U.S.-China trade conflict will escalate.

Two days of negotiations begin in Washington on Thursday, and traders are waiting to see whether Chinese and U.S. officials can salvage a deal to prevent more U.S. tariff increases.

Currency moves this week in response to the latest trade hostilities have been fairly muted, but Thursday’s jump in the yen and the Swiss franc – which tend to attract demand in times of strife – suggested investor nerves have begun to fray.
