AUDJPY | Trend Signals Weak, Topside Resistance Holds

AUDJPY continues to trade below the 80.00, which keeps the outlook bearish albeit mildly so as momentum indicators ease. Alongside this, trend signals are weak, consequently, implying that AUDJPY may remain relatively range-bound in the near-term. As topside resistance at 79.80-80.00 holds a large pullback could see support at 78.30-50 come into focus.

AUDNZD | Possible Bottom as Key Support Remains Firm

Dips below key support at 1.04 has failed to spark further selling in AUDNZD and given that trend signals remain weak, the 1.04 could continue to hold, further suggesting that the cross could have based out at 1.0370. However, while this may have been the case, there is little in the way of tentative signs that the cross will see in notable recovery. Topside resistance resides at 1.05, which marks the 50DMA.
