AUD/JPY 30min Chart

AUD/JPY 30-Min Chart

Notes: The AUDJPY has made an outside reversal candle off key support today with the rally breaching through the initial weekly opening range. Note that this move now surpasses the Sunday open gap range and shifts our near-term bias to the topside while above 96.38. This level has remained a key pivot in price and is now defined the highest close for July & the weekly opening range low and will serve as our bullish invalidation level.

Bottom line: looking to buy dips while above the weekly opening range low with a breach above 97.54 opening up subsequent topside 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 21pips per scalp.Caution is warranted heading into significant event risk this week with Wednesday FOMC policy decision specifically likely to fuel added volatility.
