Levels to trade AUD/JPY
Information is not investment advice
AUD/JPY has been recovering from the 74.00 area since the start of January, but met resistance in the 76.00 area (Dec. 13 high). On the D1, the pair formed a small “spinning top” – a candlestick signaling market’s uncertainty. The direction of a breakout from the current range between 76.10 and 75.85 will determine the further move. A break above 76.10 will open the way up to December highs around 76.50. The decline below 75.58 (100-day MA on the H4) should trigger a fall to 75.25 (50-period MA).
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.
