AUD/JPY Technical Analysis: psychological support of 79.00 may hold ground for some time

The AUD/JPY pair has lost 500 pips in the last 18 days and could extend the decline if the stocks remain risk-averse. The short-term technical indicators, however, are signaling that a minor bounce could be in the offing before the psychological support of 79.00 is breached.

Hourly chart

  • The hourly chart shows a bullish divergence of the relative strength index (RSI).

4-hour chart

  • The doji candle seen in the above chart indicates bearish exhaustion. Further, the RSI is reporting oversold conditions. That validates the bullish RSI divergence seen in the hourly chart. Hence, the pair may revisit 79.40 in the next few hours. A daily close above the 10-day MA would abort the bearish view.  

Trend: bullish
