AUD/JPY Testing Key Support as Risk Aversion Drives Yen

AUD/JPY Testing Key Support as Risk Aversion Drives Yen

AUD/JPY Daily Chart

AUD/JPY Daily Timeframe

Technical Outlook: AUDJPY has been trading within the confines of a well-defined ascending pitchfork formation with prices testing key confluence support today at 85.45. This level is defined by the 50% retracement of the 2017 range and the lower median-line parallel of the ascending structure. The immediate short-bias is at risk heading into this level. Resistance stands at 86.93 with our bearish invalidation level steady at 87.55/64.

AUD/JPY 240min Timeframe

Notes: A near-term embedded descending pitchfork off the highs has continued to offer guidance with the upper median-line parallel highlighting a near-term resistance confluence into 86.93. A break above this level would put us neutral with a rally surpassing 87.64 needed to mark resumption of the broader up-trend.

A break below this key support zone targets the lower parallel, which converges on the 61.8% retracement at 84.52. From a trading standpoint, I’d be looking for a rebound here but the larger focus remains lower while within this near-term formation.

  • A summary of IG Client Sentimentshows traders are net-short AUD/JPY- the ratio stands at -1.57 (38.9% of traders are long) –bullishreading
  • Retail has been net-short since June 29th- price has rallied 1.9% since then
  • The percent of traders net-long is now its highest since August 2nd – price was trading at 88.16
  • Long positions are 3.2% higher than yesterday but 2.3% lower from last week
  • Short positions are 14.6% lower than yesterday and 22.5% lower from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests AUDJPY prices may continue to rise. That said, the recent changes in sentiment warn that the current AUDJPY price trend may soon reverse lower despite the fact traders remain net-short.
