Australian Dollar firms up mildly after the release. Yet, AUD/JPY is staying below 76.28 resistance. Thus, there could be more consolidations before rebound from 73.93 resumes. Break of 76.28 is expected eventually as long as 75.13 support holds.

AUD/USD is still eyeing 0.7047 resistance for now. Break will resume the rebound from 0.6831. Though, rejection by 0.7047, followed by 0.6983 minor support, will turn bias to the downside for 0.6910 support.
