European Economic Community FOREX, the pound climbed 0.9 % to $1.4483, extending a recovery from last week’s two-month trough of $1.4013. It jumped 1.7 % to 151.75 yen, pulling well far from a three-year trough of 145.34 set on Thursday.

Investors took heart after 3 of six opinion polls revealed over the weekend showed a shift towards keeping Britain within the EU, but the June 23 vote still looked too close to a decision.

“The poll findings will resonate these days, seemingly seeing further advances for sterling, some renewed weakening in the yen and a firmer Australian dollar,” aforementioned Ray At trill, international co-head of FX strategy at National Australia Bank.

Indicating a general pick-up in risk appetite, U.S. stock futures rose 0.9 percent, suggesting a positive open on Wall Street later in the day.

As a result, the yen dipped across the board – a move that may facilitate ease worries regarding the strength of the currency.

On Friday, finance minister Taro Aso aforementioned he was deeply involved in “one-sided, speedy and speculative” currency moves and would respond urgently if needed – a hint at possible yen-selling market intervention.

The dollar climbed 0.6 % to 104.68 yen, while the euro puts on 1.1 % to 18.72 yen.

Against the greenback, the common currency edged up 0.5 % to $1.1333. The dollar index relieved 0.4 % to 93.825.

The Australian dollar usually sold-out off in times of heightened risk aversion, gained 0.4 % to $0.7422. It rose 0.9 % on the yen to 77.67.

Analysts warned there is a bit conviction in markets and moves could simply reverse if sentiment turned negative.

“Price action appeared very tentative everywhere, reflecting a mild trimming of ultra-cautious positions previous this week’s Brexit vote,” analysts at ANZ wrote in a note to clients.

There is little within the way of exhausting market-moving economic knowledge out of Asia on Monday, leaving markets at the mercy of the ebb and flow of optimism over the UK vote.
