  • Subsequent resistance objectives at 96.10 & slope resistance ~96.60
  • Broader double bottom objective targets 98.45

AUD/JPY 30min

AUDJPY Breakout Scalps Target 200 DMA Ahead of BoJ, China PMI

Notes:AUDJPY broke above the weekly ORH / key near-term resistance at the highlighted zone around the 94-handle with the rally now targeting targets at 95.49/50 where the 100% extension off the yearly low converges on the 2000-day moving average. We’ll be looking for a reaction here with a break higher targeting key resistance into the upper MLP / 50% retracement at 96.10. Interim support rests at 94.50 backed by the ML & 93.80. Keep in mind that this breach does constitute a double bottom on the February & April lows with a measured move targeting a broader rally into the 98-handle.

Bottom line: Looking for long triggers while above the operative median line off the monthly lows targeting the upper MLP. A quarter of the daily average true range yields profit targets of 24-27 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into the BoJ & China PMI data with the releases likely to fuel added volatility in Aussie & Yen crosses.

* 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.
