Forex news for Asia trading on

 The USD showed patchy strength in Asia trade to open the week.
Trading was thinned out a little with the long weekend in the US and

is trading just a little higher, unlike the Nikkei225 which has
jumped again after its upmove on Friday following the announcement PM
Suga is to step down. Hopes rest on whoever succeeds Suga will add
further stimulus to the economy.

AUD, NZD, GBP are all off just a little against the dollar but there
isn’t much in it. Oil is lower, taking some impetus pout of the CAD
(ditto on on not much in it).

futures in China are showing bids, especially for aluminium, with an
attempted coup in Guinea (Africa) raising concerns on bauxite, and
hence aluminium, supply. I;m sure Australia can step in with more
bauxite if needed.

(for 2 weeks) is
being cited. Details on this are sparse.
