Even as JPY crosses have ticked away.....>

DOLLAR-YEN: Even as JPY crosses have ticked away from best levels, the yen
underperforms its G10 peers at the margin, as early Asia-Pacific trade sees risk
appetite buoyant, due to the release of strong off'l Chinese PMI data over the
weekend, continued optimism re: Sino-U.S. trade talks, and the fact that
regional equity futures are in the green after European & U.S. stocks registered
gains on Friday. USD/JPY last deals at Y110.95, 10 pips higher on the day.
- The pair added 23 pips Friday, as solid risk sentiment pressured JPY to the
bottom of the G10 currency board.
- A clean break above the Y111.00 mark and the 100-DMA at Y111.05 would suggest
the resumption of the broader rally, shifting bullish focus to the 21-DMA at
Y111.14. Meanwhile, after the rate has bottomed a pip below the 100-WMA at
Y110.81, a fall through these levels would open up the Y110.69-Y110.71 zone,
which acted as a technical resistance on Mar 26 & 27.
- Japanese Tankan survey comes out at 0050BST/0850JST, ahead of final Nikkei
m'fing PMI, due later today. Elsewhere, the usual Rinban ops, due Wednesday,
will also be of interest.
