AUD/JPY Technical Analysis: 100-hour EMA is key support
The 100-hour exponential moving average (EMA) is the level to beat for the AUD/JPY bears, as the EMA has acted as strong support in the last 48 hours, capping the pullback from the high of 78.52 clocked on Jan. 15.
- As seen above, the bears are struggling to take out the 100-day EMA on an hourly closing basis.
- A sustained break below the EMA, currently at 78.04, would confirm a temporary top is likely in place at 78.52 and could yield a move lower to 77.50.
- The prospects of a drop to 77.50 or below would rise if the equity markets trade risk averse. As of writing, futures on the S&P 500 are reporting a 0.10 percent drop.
Trend: bearish below 100-hour EMA
