Stronger than expected retail sales initially gave the aussie a lift, before disappointing trade and an upward revision in unemployment sent AUD/USD to its lows around $0.8650. The reaction to the RBA statement was largely positive however, and AUD/USD spiked up to its highs of $0.8730. RBA left rates on hold for the 14th time, adding the exchange rate is "above estimates of fundamental value particularly given further declines in key commodity prices." On inflation, the RBA added that recent data on prices confirmed that inflation is running between 2-3%, reiterating it would also be consistent with the target over the next two years.- Japan Final manufacturing PMI was revised slightly lower, as resident economist cited the benefit of weaker JPY outweighed by output expansion failing to accelerate. PM Abe's economic advisor Hamada urged for the consumption tax increase to be delayed by 18 months. A Fitch report stated the surprise decision by the BoJ to increase its asset purchases is indicative of the challenges confronting the Abenomics agenda, while Moody's said the added QE was a positive development. USD/JPY is coming off its US session highs of 114.20, falling below 113.50 amid an overall USD retreat. Nikkei225 has returned from the holiday with a steep rally tracking softer Yen, rising well over 3%.- In other USD majors, EUR/USD was up about 50pips at $1.2530, GBP/USD rose 30pips toward the $1.60 level, and USD/CHF fell nearly 40 pips below 0.9630 - these all mark the first USD decline in 5 days. Gold was holding above 1,160, while Silver fell another 1% below $16.- In China, PBoC once again maintained the offering yield on its 14-day repo operations.
