FXstreet.com (London) - Asia traded relatively quietly with some signs of the market coming back to life, as new inflows seeped in to the market. There seems to be guarded investment ahead of labour data to be published on Friday, some new positions may be waiting for this potential road-bump to pass first.

Gold regained earlier losses this session, up around $5 at time of writing, taking its most correlated pairs, AUD and NZD up with it. Oil held firm at around $81.70.

The Nikkei was boosted by the resumption of Yen weakness, which helped send exporter stocks higher. The Japanese stock market trades up around 70bps right now, at 10753.25 points.

London will take few cues from a relatively quiet session, with little in terms of signification information flow or sharp price moves.
