Stock markets are sliding and the Japanese yen is rising across the board. But which currencies have the upper hand? Here is the view from NAB:

Here is their view, courtesy of eFXnews:

NAB Research discusses AUD/JPY outlook and thinks that  short AUD/JPY is an attractive play to position for the recent risk-off theme.    

“AUD/JPY in our view it is the G10  “weapon of choice”  to express the current risk aversion theme.

The pair is currently toying with a break sub ¥81 and  a move sub the ¥80 key psychological level brings the Sep16 low of ¥ 75.9 well within sight.

We retain a bearish outlook on the AUD and bullish one on JPY. Even if key weekly support levels are not broken today, we think it is reasonable to expect both USD/JPY and AUD/JPY to trade lower over the coming months,” NAB argues.
