Asia FX Handover - 23rd April 2019


  • Another session of thin trade as markets return to their desks after the long-weekend.
  • JPY spiked as flows returned, forcing AUD/JPY below pivotal support and knocking USD/JPY out of it's 40-pip range momentarily. JPY is currently the strongest major (USD/JPY lower) and AUD is the weakest, although at hardly the magnitude to call it risk-off.
  • WTI held onto 6-month highs after the Whitehouse confirmed it will remove waivers tied to Iranian crude oil.
  • Whilst it was a mixed picture for Asian equities, the ASX 200 hit a 7-month high despite yesterday's sell-off in China surrounding stimulus.
