AUD/JPY Technical Analysis

Notably, AUD/JPY is now close to its 20, 100 and 200 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 100 day average, which is 91.1 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days AUD/JPY’s price has gone up 16 them. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there are doji and pin bar patterns showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
