The AUD/JPY cross wiped-out gains and fell back into the red zone near 83 handle, following the release of mixed Australian datasets.
Moreover, the cross came under renewed selling pressure, as the yen regained ground amid moderate risk-aversion persisting in Asia, with the Asian indices trading in negative territory.
Also, the yen markets appear to ignore a slew of mixed Japanese macro news, and continue to benefit from risk-off trades, weighing down on the AUD/JPY cross.
Next of relevance for the cross remains the US GDP data due later in the NA session. In the meantime, risk trends will play a crucial role.
