AUD/JPY daily chart
On the daily chart, the AUD/JPY pair faces rejection near the 84.90-85 region. The descending trendline from the highs of 85.80 acts as a wall of defense for the bulls.
If price sustains above the session’s high at 84.78, then it has the possibility to move to the high of June 3 in the vicinity of 85.0 area. This would also coincide with the break of the bearish slope line pushing prices higher toward the 85.20 horizontal resistance area.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator reads above the midline with a neutral stance. Any uptick in the MACD could prompt AUD/JPY bulls to retest the May 11 near the 85.45 level.
Alternatively, if price slips below 84.70, then it could bring AUD/JPY sellers into the picture with the immediate target at the 38.3% Fibonacci retracement, which extends from the lows of 83.09,at 84.50.
The next area of support would emerge near the 50-hour Simple Moving Average (SMA) at 84.35. If price is not able to sustain here, then it could navigate to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 84, the level last seen in April.
