Chart Of The Day - Corrective rebound extends for AUDJPY in light of easing trade tensions

82.40 is the key short-term support to watch for AUD/JPY to maintain corrective rebound phase.

Short-term technical outlook on AUD/JPY (Tues, 10 Apr)

Key technical elements

  • After it printed a low of 80.48 on 23 Mar 2018, the AUD/JPY cross pair has started to stage  rebound of 200+ pips to hit a current intraday high of 82.96 in today, 10 Apr Asian session.
  • The on-going rebound is being support by a revival in medium-term upside momentum where the daily RSI oscillator has continued to inch upwards above its former resistance at the 45% level after a prior bullish divergence signal.
  • In the short-term (hourly chart), the pair has started to evolve within a minor ascending channel with its next significant short-term resistances coming in at 83.00/20 (Fibonacci cluster & the former minor swing high areas of 06/08 Mar 2018) follow by 83.60 (76.4% Fibonacci retracement of the recent decline from 13 Mar high to 23 Mar 2018 low of 80.48 & the former minor range support from 12/13 Mar 2018).
  • The key short-term support rests at 82.40 which is defined by today, 10 Apr Asian session low that has tested and staged a rebound from the former minor range resistance that is closed to the 82.40 level from 05/09 Apr 2017.

Key levels (1 to 3 days)

Pivot (key support): 82.40

Resistances: 83.00/20 & 83.60

Next supports: 81.90/77


Therefore as long as the 82.40 key short-term pivotal support holds, the AUD/JPY may shape an extension of its on-going corrective rebound to target the next intermediate resistances at 83.00/20 follow by 83.60 next.

On the other hand, a break below 82.40 negates the bullish tone for a deeper pull-back to retest 81.90/77 (the former minor range resistance of 27/30 Mar 2018.
