FXStreet (Bali) - It has been an uninspiring Asian session, with no major moves to report ahead of the G-20 meeting this weekend.

The AUD/USD made a timid attempt to break through 0.90, however, solid bids parked around 0.8980 coupled with lack of selling conviction, managed to sustain the rate, resulting in a tight 15-20 pips range just below the big round number.

The USD/JPY saw a session high of 102.54 early in the Tokyo session, with the Nikkei rising close to 2%, but no follow-through caused the pair to trade in a comatose state within a 10/15 pips range. The BoJ minutes was completely shrugged off by market participants.

The USD/CAD had some slightly bigger moves, breaking into new weekly highs at 1.1265. Euro, Pound, Swiss Franc and Kiwi were almost unchanged vs the Greenback.
