AUD/JPY Off highs, Flirts with 200-DMA

The bid tone surrounding the AUD/JPY cross weakened a bit in the European session, dragging the prices slightly lower from daily tops.

AUD/JPY trims gains on Aussie retreat

The AUD/JPY pair now trades 0.09% to 85.70, flirting with 200-DMA located at 85.74. The cross remains better bid this session as the upbeat momentum surrounding the AUD/USD pair overshadows the gains in the Japanese yen versus its American counterpart.

Moreover, the gains remain restricted as markets turn cautious ahead of the key risk event – the ECB policy decision, due later this session. Meanwhile, the US economic data will be also closely watched for further direction on the cross.
