AUDJPY 30min Chart

AUDJPY Targets Key Resistance - Shorts Favored Sub 96.00

Notes: The AUDJPY is eyeing a key inflection zone that stand just above the August opening range high at 95.81/90. This level is defined by the 78.6% retracement of the decline off the yearly high & a longer-dated 50% retracement of the decline off the April 2013 high and will serve as our near-term bearish invalidation level. Intra-week momentum divergence has shifted the near-term focus lower against this key resistance range with a break below the weekly opening range low needed to validate the near-term directional bias.

We’ll look to sell rallies while below this level with a topside breach/close above shifting our scalp bias into subsequent topside resistance objectives. Note that the average true range has remained rather tight here so we’ll increase the profit targets to 1/3 of the daily ATR- this puts us at approximately 17pips per scalp.Caution is warranted heading into event risk out of Australia and Japan tonight with the releases likely to fuel added volatility in Aussie and Yen crosses. Follow the progress of this trade setup and more throughout the trading week with DailyFX on Demand.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
