AUD/JPY Resumes Decline as Yen Picks-up Pace

The AUD/JPY cross resumed its downward trajectory in Asia this Thursday, largely driven by the yen rises amid talks of fx market intervention by BOJ.

AUD/JPY recovers to 83 handle

The AUD/JPY pair now drops -0.43% to 83.05, recovering slightly from near fresh five-week lows reached at 82.85. The cross in the AUD/JPY fell back in the red, reversing a temporary rise seen in the previous session, as the yen fought back control and now continues to surge against its American counterpart, despite a rebound in the oil prices.

Over the last hour, the cross is seen making minor recovery attempt on the 83 handle, thanks to the renewed rally in the AUD/USD, as the Aussie continues to track oil prices higher.

Next on the tap for the cross remains the US jobless claims data, while headlines from Japan official will be closely monitored for any cues on the exchange rate level.
