AUD/JPY Technical Analysis: pullback to 73.00 could be on the cards

The JPY crosses have come under pressure despite the uptick in the S&P 500 futures.

Notably, the AUD/JPY pair could be in for a 50 pip drop from the current level of 77.50, courtesy of the weaker-than-expected Aussie trade surplus data and the bearish divergence of the relative strength index (RSI).

Hourly chart

  • As seen above, the 14-hour RSI has diverged in favor of the bears and is showing a double top breakdown - a bearish pattern.  Further, the MACD has crossed over into the negative territory.
