It’s worth paying attention to AUD/JPY. The pair has approached the resistance line connecting April and May highs. Bullish momentum has recently declined; we can see that the Awesome Oscillator doesn’t confirm price highs. On the upside, the obstacle lies at 71.35. AUD/JPY needs to break higher in order to gain ability to get to 72.10 (200-day MA). On the downside, we see significant support at 70.45 (100-day MA) and 70.15 (previous highs). Below this point, targets will be at 69.70 and 69.20.
Overall, the pair can make another attempt to test 71.20/35 area and then turn to the mentioned support levels.
