AUDJPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that AUDJPY is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 80.2795, 80.9669, 82.6805 and 82.1151 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 50 day average, which is 20.1 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 14 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days AUDJPY’s price has gone up 7 them. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
