Daily Currency Outlook: AUD/USD And USD/JPY : August 28,2018

AUD/USD Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.7316; (P) 0.7337; (R1) 0.7366;

AUD/USD is staying in range of 0.7237/7381 and intraday bias remains neutral. More consolidation is likely in near term. In case of stronger rise through 0.7381 we’d expect upside to be limited by 0.7452 resistance to bring larger down trend resumption eventually. On the downside, below 0.7237 will target a test on 0.7201 low first.

AUD/USD

In the bigger picture, rebound from 0.6826 (2016 low) is seen as a corrective move that should be completed at 0.8135. Fall from there would extend to have a test on 0.6826. There is prospect of resuming long term down trend from 1.1079 (2011 high). But we’ll look at downside momentum to assess at a later stage. On the upside, break of 0.7452 resistance, however, will indicate medium term bottoming, on bullish convergence condition in daily MACD. In that case, a correction should be seen first, with stronger rebound would be seen to 38.2% retracement of 0.8135 to 0.7201 at 0.7558. The down trend from 0.8135 will resume after the correction completes.

USD/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 110.88; (P) 111.12; (R1) 111.30; USD/JPY is staying in tight range below 111.48 temporary top and intraday bias remains neutral. Outlook is unchanged that correction from 113.17 should have completed at 109.76 already. On the upside, above 111.48 will extend the rebound from 109.76 to 112.14 first. Break will target a test on 113.17 high. Meanwhile, below 110.74 minor support will dampen the bullish case and turn focus back to 109.76 instead.

USD/JPY

In the bigger picture, corrective fall from 118.65 (2016 high) should have completed with three waves down to 104.62. Decisive break of 114.73 resistance will likely resume whole rally from 98.97 (2016 low) to 100% projection of 98.97 to 118.65 from 104.62 at 124.30, which is reasonably close to 125.85 (2015 high). This will stay as the preferred case as long as 109.36 support holds. However, decisive break of 109.36 will mix up the outlook again. And deeper fall should be seen back to 61.8% retracement of 104.62 to 113.17 at 107.88 and below.
