AUD/JPY may fall further

AUD/JPY may fall further

2020-02-26 • Updated

AUD/JPY is in the downtrend since the start of the year. It was capped on the upside by all the three important moving averages on the D1 (200, 100, and 50 SMA). This week the pair broke below the February support line in the 73.40 area. Its attempts to get higher have failed, as sellers are quite active. The threat of the coronavirus is the biggest bearish driver for the AUD. The odds are that its impact will continue. At the moment of writing, the pair is testing support at 72.50 (February low, 61.8% Fibonacci of the 2019 advance). The break below this level will open the way down to 71.75 (October lows) and 71.35 (78.6% Fibo). Resistance lies at 73.25 and 73.80.
