AUD/JPY needs to decide
Information is not investment advice
AUD/JPY has reached the support line connecting August and October lows in the 73.30 area. Now the pair will have to decide, which trend it’s going to continue: the long-term downtrend or a shorter-term uptrend. In the first case, the initial targets will lie at 72.80 and 72.15 (50% and 61.8% of the August-November advance). If the support holds and the price returns above the 50- and 100-day MAs, a break above 73.95 will allow it to rise to 74.50 (September highs).
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
