TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The euro and Japanese yen on Tuesday largely held gains made against the dollar this week after disappointing manufacturing data and signs of new fronts in U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade war rattled greenback investors.
Moves in currency markets were broadly contained, however, with volatility remaining low and investors not appearing to take much fright at news of U.S. tariffs on imports of metals from Argentina and Brazil and the threat of more tariffs on a range of European goods.
