TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The Japanese yen fell to a 10-month low on Thursday, extending its previous day’s slide that saw the currency breach a key technical level against a broadly strengthening dollar.

A run of dire economic news out of Japan has stirred talk the country is already in recession and that Japanese funds were dumping local assets in favor of U.S. shares and gold.
