AUD/JPY Price Analysis: At 6-day highs amid risk appetite

  • AUD/JPY rises at the end of the session, supported by a risk-on sentiment fueled by the advance of Wall Street.
  • Buyers are in control as the pair breaks above 97.00, aiming for a daily close above 98.00 for further gains.
  • Despite the rise, downside risks persist; Sellers could target levels below 97.00 on bearish momentum.

He AUD/JPY rises at the end of the North American session on Friday, supported by a boost in risk appetite, since the advance of Wall Street could appreciate it. Therefore, safe-haven pairs come under pressure while US Treasury yields retreat, a tailwind for riskier assets. At the time of writing, the AUD/JPY pair is trading at 97.79, marking a new six-day high.

The pair started the week around the week's lows, below the Tenkan-Sen, but the AUD/JPY exchange rate was already above the Ichimoku (Kumo) Cloud, suggesting buyers were on the command. Consequently, they recovered 97.00 and, on Friday, extended their gains. Still, downside risks remain as buyers need a daily close above 98.00 to hold out hope of testing last year's high of 98.58. Once these levels are surpassed, the next stop would be 99.00.

For the bears, sellers need to take prices below 97.00, through the Tenkan Sen at 96.97, towards the January 16 low at 96.58. A break of this last level would expose sellers to a decline. A break of the latter will expose the Kijun-Sen at 96.18, before the Senkou Span B and A, each at 96.14 and 96.01.
