Major Asian indexes follow with solid gains in Hong Kong. Dollar also extended this week’s retreat but losses are so far limited. Meanwhile, commodity currencies are extending recovery too.

Technically, USD/JPY’s breach of 110.81 resistance suggests resumption of the choppy rise from 107.47 towards 110.95 high. GBP/JPY’s break of 154.10 resistance suggests that correction from 156.05 has completed at 151.28 already.
