AUD/JPY – Technical Analysis

The AUD/JPY has stalled on its recent rally as it failed to break through the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at 82.03 last week. That level is now a potential resistance point as it failed again 2 days later to go higher.

Above that level is further possible resistance at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of 82.79, calculated from the May high of 85.81 to the August low at 77.90. This retracement level closely coincides with a previous high at 82.82. Further resistance may lie at the previous highs of 84.26 and 85.81.

Immediate support may be provided at the 21-day SMA of 80.34 and at the previous low of 77.90.

AUD/NZD – Technical Analysis

The AUD/NZD remains in a descending channel and there are several trendlines with a negative gradient. In late August, the cross made a new low for the year when it broke through the previous low of 1.0418.

Trendline support, currently at 1.0310, may lend some potential for a turn higher, and a break below that level could suggest an acceleration in the down move.

On the topside, there are a number of levels that might offer resistance at the previous highs of 1.0454, 1.0542 and 1.0621. Should AUD/NZD move back above the 21-day SMA of 1.0412, it may suggest a pause in the downtrend.

AUD/CAD – Technical Analysis

At the beginning of this month, the AUD/CAD managed to break up through a previous high of 0.9234 and trendline resistance before progressing to move above the 100-day SMA. As a result of this recent run higher, the 21-day SMA has turned to a positive gradient.

The next potential resistance levels are at the recent top of 0.9377 and the previous high at 0.9420. Beyond those points, there is a pivot point reversal at 0.9451 that may offer resistance.

On the downside, 0.9234 has now become a pivot point to watch while the new low of the year at 0.9114 may provide some support.
