USD/JPY takes the bids to refresh intraday high near 135.30, up for the third consecutive day, as Bank of Japan (BoJ) Governor Kazuo Ueda defends easy money policy as markets in Tokyo open for Tuesday.

The NZD/USD pair has displayed a mild correction to near 0.6340 in the early Asian session after a juggernaut rally.

It’s worth observing that mildly bid WTI crude oil, Canada’s key exports, also allows the quote to lure bears.
USD/CHF remains depressed around 0.8900 round figure amid Tuesday’s Asian session, following the first daily loss in three. In doing so, the Swiss Franc (CHF) pair traces downbeat options market signals to fade the bounce off the lowest levels since January 2021 marked in the last week.
