AUD / JPY daily chart
On the daily chart, the cross is building up near yesterday’s close at 84.60. The formation of the Doji candlestick points to undecided market players at this point. If price follows the weekly downward momentum then the first support zone could be yesterday’s low at 84.29.
The declining moving average (MACD) convergence divergence indicator then looks for the horizontal support level of 84.00.
The next resistance zone would be the April 26 low at 83.50.
Alternatively, if the price reverses, then it could retest yesterday’s high at 84.90 followed by Wednesday’s high at 85.26.
Price action would mark a continuation of the initial uptrend reaching the horizontal resistance level of 85.50.
