FXStreet (Bali) - It has been a quiet Asian session in the FX arena, with tight ranges dominating ahead of Europe.

The Australian Dollar, after the spike through 0.90 up towards 0.9047 in the US session - courtesy of rising stocks - , has been consolidating gains above the $0.9015/20 area.

The Japanese Yen continues to struggle, despite USD/JPY is still holding below the 102.70/103.00 critical resistance. The breakout in the Nikkei 225 (up over 1.5%) above 15,000 has not propelled enough momentum for the pair to try a break higher through the mentioned offers-sensitivity area.

The rest of currencies, that is, EUR, GBP, NZD, CAD, CHF, all traded in small ranges with investors sidelined ahead of new catalysts.
