AUD/JPY daily chart

On the daily chart, the cross accumulates in the vicinity of the previous day’s closing at 84.60. The formation of the Doji candlestick points at the indecisive market participants at this juncture.  If price follows the weekly downward momentum, then the first area of support could be the previous day’s low at 84.29.

The receding Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator looks for the 84.00 horizontal support level next.  

The next area of resistance would be April 26 lows at 83.50.

Alternatively, if price reverses, then it could retest the previous day’s high at 84.90 followed by Wednesday’s high of 85.26.  

The price action would mark the continuation of the initial uptrend reaching out for the 85.50 horizontal resistance level.
