TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The Japanese yen remained near seven-month highs on Tuesday and the U.S. dollar supported, as investors unnerved by the Sino-U.S. trade war, protests in Hong Kong and a crash in Argentina’s peso currency sought safety.

The euro briefly extended an earlier decline after a survey showed German sentiment deteriorated more than expected.

Investors have flocked to the yen amid an escalating trade war between China and the United States and worries about a global economic slowdown. The Japanese currency, along with the dollar and Swiss franc, is a safe haven in times of uncertainty.
