Asian equities were higher taking cues from the US housing data, raising investor confidence in the US. The USD traded in the upper 101 range early in the session, little changed from levels ended last week. After the BOJ released its minutes from April 30 meeting, the yen weakened slightly against the dollar around the 102 level, while the AUD/USD was little changed. The minutes indicated continued minority dissent regarding views on growth and inflation with three members wanted to revise outlooks to growth and inflation. Investors expressed optimism that geopolitical tensions would ease after a couple of exit polls in Ukraine showed presidential candidate Poroshenko gained over 55 per cent of the vote. He later declared victory, stating that the election was over after the first round. The candidate is seeking stronger ties with the EU and improved relations with Russia while committed to peace in the region.
