ASIAN MARKETS, AUSSIE-YEN
AUSSIE-YEN: AUD/JPY hovers just above the psychological Y75.00 barrier,
struggling to stage an attack at the level. It trades at Y75.08, 10 pips lower
on the day, after a round of JPY buying seen earlier in the session.
- Today's highlight is the Australian jobs report, due at the bottom of the
hour. Japan has already reported its trade balance, which met expectations but
was underpinned by worse than forecast imports and exports figures. We have also
seen Australian consumer inflation exp. gauge, which rose to 4.7% from 4.0%.
- To recap, the rate fluctuated yesterday as participants weighed reports on
China's coronavirus situation, but closed almost unchanged.
- The cluster of a round figure/23.6% retracement of the Aug 26 - Dec 27 bull
mkt/50-DMA at Y75.00/74.99/74.96 provides the initial bearish target. A clean
break here would prompt bears to set their sights on the 200-DMA, last seen at
Y74.70. On the flip side, bulls look for a jump above the 21-DMA at Y75.60 to
gain some impetus.
