FX Reversals: AUDJPY Resistance Reversal Update

(Created using FXCM’s Marketscope 2.0 charts)

Suggested Reading: Trading Intraday Market Reversals

The AUDJPY has been slowly trending lower this week on Aussie weakness. This has allowed traders to look for further weakness as the pair tests key values of resistance. Currently the AUDJPY has failed to break above its daily R3 range resistance value at a price of 96.46. In the event that price begins to move lower, retracement traders and range traders alike can begin to target values of support. As seen above, range support stands at a price of 96.02, completing todays 44 pip trading range.

If market conditions change from present, traders should begin looking for an increased probability of a price breakout. A price breakout below S4 pivot support at 95.80, would signal strong momentum in the direction of the AUDJPYs current trend. As well a move above the R4 pivot at 96.68, would indicate the possibility of a broader reversal on the creation of a higher high. In either breakout scenario, traders should look to conclude any range based positions and adjust to the markets current directional bias.
