    AUD/JPY has followed suit of its counterparts, with USD/JPY pushed on to the 109 handle and the Aussie making a strong performance with iron ore rallying 3% overnight and oil claiming back grounds in the $40.00's bbls.

    Risk was back on and investors are hardening up to this kind of shock event in 2016, now prepared to just get on with it. While oil was a big sell-off, it was not regarded as anything out of the scope of an ordinary large move and we were soon to close the bearish gap as London got going, breaking onto the 84 handle and only stopping to look back at the half-way mark on the handle until chasing down 84.80 resistance as Tokyo got going. We may pause here ahead of the RBA minutes coming up, but see what China does ahead of the release.

    AUD/JPY levels

    We have broken last week's high and a continuation onto the 85 handle targets 85.20 and 4th April highs before targeting the 200 dma at 86.03 and March high at 86.70. To the downside, support is seen at the 100 and 20 dma at the 84.20/30's with yesterday's daily low at 82.46 and last major defence before late Feb lows just below the 80 handle.
