FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - USD resumed the buying along the Asian session this Thursday reaching fresh 5-day highs at 81.53 of the DXY spot index, right below the 200 DMA at 81.60, with USD/JPY at session highs 98.29, and Nikkei index down -0.62%.

EUR/USD dipped to as low as 1.3330, and Cable got even deeper to below the key 1.56 handle, making EUR/GBP surge. AUD/USD printed fresh 2-week lows at 0.8930 following FOMC but bounced back above the 0.90 level after better than expected HSBC flash manufacturing PMI China coming in at 50.1 vs 47.7 previous, trading last at 0.8987.

In the other hand Indian Rupee posted fresh all-time lows above the 65 level for USD/INR, while Gold and Oil both eased below $1360 and $104 respectively. Local share markets traded in the negative overall, except the Shanghai Composite that hardly breaks even.
