    The AUD/JPY pair managed to move-off lows, although remains deep in the red zone as risk-off market profile continues to persist amid falling stocks, oil and bond yields.

    AUD/JPY faces double whammy

    Currently, the AUD/JPY pair crashes -2.50% to 78.44, recovering slightly from more than three-year lows reached at 77.61 post-European open. The AUD/JPY cross is seen making minor-recovery attempts on the 78 handle amid a complete risk-averse market environment, as both USD/JPY and AUD/USD try to recover lost ground somewhat.

    The increased safe-haven bids for the yen drowned the USD/JPY pair to its lowest levels since Oct 2014, while the risk currency AUD/USD suffered heavily as markets pulled out funds from higher-yielding currencies and flocked to safe-havens.

    Looking ahead, the cross will continue to track the broader market sentiment, while the downside pressure is likely to persist amid ongoing equities rout.
