Can Australian GDP Break AUD/JPY Congestion?

Can Australian GDP Break AUD/JPY Congestion?

Dimitri Zabelin, Analyst


  • AUD/JPY has been congesting between 79.055-79.899
  • A break below (if GDP data misses) may signal reversal
  • Otherwise, clearing resistance should need confirmation

Since early January, AUD/JPY has been trading between the 74.263-79.899 range with doji-like candles potentially signaling investors’ uncertainty over upside momentum in the pair. It shied away from 79.899 on several occasions which may be an indicator that the pair is bumping up against a significant price roof. A break above this could be followed by a spike, but the duration and magnitude of such a jump are unknown.

Conversely, a break below 77.735 might signal a strong bearish inclination and could push AUD/JPY down to the next possible floor at 76.278. If it reaches this support, attempts at breaching key resistance at 79.899 might be akin to pushing a boulder up a hill.
