Commodity FX faltered in quiet Asia-Pac trade even as BBG Commodity Index extended gains to fresh multi-year highs, with little in the way of notable headline flow crossing the wires. JPY struggled for momentum despite aversion to high-betas, as Japanese gov't confirmed they will seek the extension & expansion of Covid-19 state of emergency.

  • USD/CNH knee-jerked to a session low as a surge in exports underpinned the much wider than expected Chinese trade surplus. This allowed the pair to extend its earlier losses and print worst levels since late Feb.
