AUD/JPY has been very volatile and corrective at the edge of 87.30-50 event area. AUD has been struggling with the mixed economic reports whereas JPY is also found to be facing hard times with recently published worse economic reports. Today Japan’s Bank Lending report was published with a decreased value at 2.8% from the previous value of 2.9% which was expected to increase to 3.0%, the Core Machinery Orders report was published with negative value of -8.1% which previously was positive at 3.4% and was expected to be at -1.8%. Besides, the Current Account report was also published with worse figure at 1.84T which previously was at 2.27T and expected to be at 2.05T. On the AUD side, today Home Loans report was published with a negative value of -2.3% which previously was positive at 1.5% and was expected to increase to 2.5%. The massive downfall of the economic report today can lead AUD to lose some grounds against JPY despite the worse economic reports from Japan published today. As of the current scenario, AUD is weaker in comparison to JPY and it is expected that JPY is going to gain further taking the price much lower in the coming days.
Now let us look at the technical view. The price is currently correcting itself at the edge of the event area of 87.30-50 area. The price is also being resisted by the dynamic level of 20 EMA along with the horizontal level resistance which is expected to push the price lower towards 85.50 support area in the coming days. As the price remains below 88.00 resistance area, the bearish bias is expected to continue further.
