A defensive feel crept into G10 FX space in Asia, even as regional equity benchmarks rose on a positive lead from Wall Street. Major crosses unwound some of yesterday's moves, with liquidity thinned out by a market closure in Japan.

- NZD, AUD and CAD lost ground, but NOK bucked the trend and held up well, despite weaker crude oil prices.
- The PBOC fix fell virtually in line with sell-side expectations. USD/CNH ground higher through the session, partly retracing its deepest downswing in eight weeks seen on Wednesday.
