AUD/JPY refreshes intraday top with 84.53, up 0.10% around 84.48 while writing, as the quote consolidates the previous day’s losses during Thursday’s Asian session. The pair awaits key Aussie employment data for fresh impulse.

However, the quote’s bounce off a multi-day-old support line near 84.30, not to forget the refrain from breaking the 50-day SMA level of 84.18, keep buyers hopeful.

Even if the quote breaks 84.18, the 84.00 threshold and lower line of a two-month-long rising wedge bearish formation near 83.80 raise bars for the AUD/JPY sellers’ entry.

Meanwhile, corrective pullback needs to cross a one-week-old resistance line near 85.00 before directing buyers toward the rising wedge’s resistance line close to 85.90.

Also acting as an upside barrier is the 86.00 round figure and early January 2018 low near 87.20.
