SEOUL Feb 9 The South Korean won traded
in a narrow range on Thursday as investors took a cautious
stance ahead of a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump
and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
The won was quoted at 1,145.8 to the dollar at
the conclusion of onshore trade, up 0.1 percent compared to
Wednesday's close of 1,147.2.
Friday's summit between Trump and Abe could have a
significant influence on Japan's yen currency, sending ripples
to other Asian currencies like the won.
South Korean shares held steady and the Korea Composite
Stock Price Index (KOSPI) closed at 2,065.88 points.
Offshore investors turned to net buyers later in the
session, purchasing 54.8 billion won ($47.87 million) worth of
KOSPI shares on Thursday.
