AUD/JPY Stages Solid Comeback, Around 82 Handle

The AUD/JPY cross staged a solid comeback from fresh monthly lows and recovered almost one big figure from the previous close, mainly driven by yen’s profit-taking slide across the board.

AUD/JPY receives double booster shot

The AUD/JPY pair now jumps +1.05% to 82.05, fading a spike to 82.22 session highs. The cross in the AUD/JPY recovered almost half the previous slide and now consolidates the recovery in early Europe, awaiting fresh cues on the overall market sentiment from the European session.

The cross rebounded in Asia this Friday, largely back a robust recovery in the USD/JPY pair as markets booked profits on their short positions heading into the weekly close. While higher Aussie in response to the rebounding oil prices also collaborated to the recovery in the prices.
