    AUD/JPY pares gains and drops further below 20-DMA

    Currently, the AUD/JPY pair trades 0.32% higher at 80.73, reversing a spike to daily highs reached at 81.31 post-European open. The cross in the AUD/JPY are seen trimming gains, although remain firmly on the bids, mainly backed by the ongoing weakness in the yen versus the US dollar, with the USD/JPY pair extending further beyond 113 handle.
