Key Quotes

"US CPI was a tenth higher than expected, while the Philadelphia Fed index was strong, and existing home sales grew 1.5% against expectations for a fall."

"Despite this the AUD remained above previous lows, and finished the day near its highs. While this indicates that short term positioning is large, the momentum in the US economy is getting hard to ignore and the USD should reassert."

USD/JPY offered on the Tokyo open

USD/JPY is trading at 118.15, up 0.13% on the day, having posted a daily high at 118.38 and low at 118.00.
