    AUD/JPY aims for 200-DMA at 87.18

    Currently, the AUD/JPY pair trades 0.30% higher at 86.35, hovering close to fresh multi-week highs posted at 86.40 last minutes. The bid tone around AUD/JPY picked up pace in the last hour, after the AUD/USD pair stretched its bullish run and extended further towards 0.7600 levels, tracking the rally in copper prices.

    On the JPY-side of the equation, the USD/JPY pair keeps range below 114 handle and now awaits fresh impetus from the BOJ and Fed policy meeting against the back drop of prevalent risk-on environment. While domestic economic data out of Japan is largely ignored by markets as focus remains on the RBA minutes and BOJ policy decision due tomorrow.
