AUDJPY Scalp Chart

AUDJPY Long-bias at Risk Sub 96- BoJ / China Data On Tap

Notes: Although the yen has not been in our sights for some time now, the AUDJPY has come into a critical area of resistance just below the 2014 highs at 96.50. Intra-week RSI divergence followed by a support trigger-break earlier today immediately our bias to the short side of the pair against Fibonacci resistance at 96.06/10. Note that aside from the Aussie employment spike, the pair has continued to hold within the confines of the weekly opening range and a break/close is needed to validate our near-term directional bias.

Bottom line: the rally is vulnerable here at near-term resistance and the risk for further losses remains while below the 96-handle. Look for a break of the weekly low to offer conviction on short exposure with a breach above the June high putting the broader trend back into focus targeting the 2014 high and beyond into 97.50/67.
