Greenback adds in Asia as market shrugs off NKorea

In Japan, the trade balance appeared to be weaker than expected, showing ¥482 billion for April, unlike a surplus of ¥521 billion observed.

The currency pair USD/JPY reached 111.57, rallying 0.28% after the data.

The currency pair AUD/USD slumped 0.19%, being worth 0.7447. As for GBP/USD, this pair dipped 0.32%, trading at 1.2993 after an opinion survey demonstrated the lead of conservatives reduction by half in a Survation telephone survey issued on Monday.
