    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The AUD/JPY cross rebounds sharply in the European session this Friday, and remains poised to book the first daily gains in four, as risk-on sentiment persists on higher equities and oil prices.

    AUD/JPY holds above 83 handle

    Currently, the AUD/JPY pair jumps 0.88% to 83.23, retreating from a dip to fresh session lows reached at 83.08. Having face stiff resistance around 83.80 region couple of times earlier this session, the AUD/JPY cross is seen consolidating to the upside before the next leg higher, with markets in a full risk-on mode, spurred by the recovery in China stock markets and a weaker yuan fix.

    Hence, the AUD/USD pair continues to take the yield advantage and shoots higher while the yen corrects lower on reduced appetite for safety assets. The rebound in global equities along with higher oil prices keep the sentiment underpinned and AUD/JPY in the green zone.

    Moreover, markets shrugged off mixed Australian datasets released earlier in Asia, as attention now remains on the payrolls data for further momentum.
