Sellers are back in near-term control on a break under the key hourly moving averages, and notably driving price below some near-term support around 107.34-40.

That has seen the yen accelerate gains against the dollar, with 10-year Treasury yields also slumping to session lows - down by nearly 3 bps to 0.662%.

The risk tones in the market are looking more cautious/defensive and has seen quite a turn of events following the announcement by US president Trump here yesterday.

EUR/USD is back up to 1.1100 while the pound is also holding slight gains against the greenback currently, with cable also seen at session highs of 1.2342 currently.
