Market officials said, "In response to the talks between senior U.S. and Chinese officials, investors may review the tariffs imposed on imports from China by the U.S. government to curb inflation to a record level. There has been widespread speculation that this has eased some of the concerns about a slowdown in the United States and has strengthened the move to sell yen and buy dollars, which are considered relatively safe assets.
