AUD/JPY DAILY PRICE CHART (SEP 1 – April 8, 2020) Zoomed IN

AUDJPY daily price chart 08-04-20 zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we noticed that on March 20 AUD/JPY climbed to current traded zone 64.08 – 67.18. Since then, the price has failed in multiple occasions to rally off the zone.

Thus, another failure in closing above the high end could reverse the pair’s direction towards the low end of the zone. Further close below that level may encourage bears to push towards 61.67. In that scenario, the weekly support area underscored on the chart should be considered.

On the flip-side, any successful close above the high end of the zone may cause a rally towards 70.21. Further close above that level could extend the rally towards 71.87. Having said that, the weekly resistance levels and area marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be watched closely.

AUD/JPY Four-Hour PRICE CHART (FEb 11– April 8, 2020)

AUDJPY Four hour chart 08-04-20

From the four- hour chart, we noticed that on March 23 AUD/JPY rallied above the downtrend line originated from the March 11 high at 68.79. On Tuesday, the price broke above the downtrend line originated from the March 25 high 67.70 and currently eyes a test of 69.27.

A break above 68.23 would be considered as an additional bullish signal. This increases the likelihood of AUDJPY testing 69.27. Yet, the psychological resistance level underlined on the chart should be kept in focus. In turn, any break in the other direction i.e. below 65.57 could send the price towards 64.38 . Although, the daily support level printed on the chart should be monitored.
