    The AUD/JPY pair gave up nearly 50-pips over the last hour and slipped back below 81 handle, as the Australian dollar shaved-off entire gains and turned negative against the buck.

    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.

    While the retreat from daily tops can be attributed to the renewed sell-off seen in the AUD/USD, after the prices failed to take out 0.72 barrier. The Aussie rallied earlier today after the RBA left the key rate unchanged at 2.0%.
