Analysis and Recommendation:

The AUD/USD  is trading at 1.0264 gaining a few pips in early trading on Friday. Markets have had little reaction to the Bank of Japan announcement this morning hold rates and policy. Traders had expected another injection of stimulus.

The non-farm payrolls figures due on Friday would be an important event for the Aussie dollar and global sentiment. The data and its significance could be very interesting.

The implications for future monetary policy and the political situation should be interesting.

Investors were buoyed by European Central Bank president Mario Draghi affirming the bank's support for the euro at Thursday's monetary policy review and the minutes to the last Federal Open Market Committee meeting which showed the Fed won't let its asset-buying program won't be allowed to disrupt markets.

Traders are preparing for US non-farm payrolls, which are expected to show the world's biggest economy added more than 100,000 jobs last month, with employment the major focus for the Federal Reserve in assessing the recovery.
