TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

China’s offshore yuan gave up some of its earlier gains on Wednesday as weaker-than-expected economic data tempered the optimism generated by a U.S. decision to delay tariffs on Chinese imports.

The enthusiasm ebbed more broadly, as well. The safe-haven Japanese yen strengthened again, a sign that risk appetite remains fragile. The yen fell on Tuesday after the U.S, announcement.
