Daily Currency Outlook: USD/JPY And AUD/USD : December 11,2018

USD/JPY Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 112.58; (P) 112.98; (R1) 113.71;

USD/JPY’s breach of 113.24 minor resistance suggests that corrective fall from 114.20 has completed with three waves down to 112.23. Intraday bias is turned back to the upside for 114.03 resistance first. Break will target 114.54 key resistance next. On the downside, break of 112.23 will extend the consolidation from 114.54 with deeper fall. But after all, downside should be contained by 38.2% retracement of 104.62 to 114.54 at 110.75 to bring rebound. Larger rise from 104.62 is expected to resume later.


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 109.76 support holds. However, decisive break of 109.76 will dampen this bullish view and turns outlook mixed again.


AUD/USD Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.7169; (P) 0.7198; (R1) 0.7218;

No change in AUD/USD’s outlook and focus remains on 0.7199 support. Decisive break there will suggest that the corrective rebound from 0.7020 has completed earlier than expected. Deeper fall should then be seen back to retest 0.7020 low. On the upside, above 0.7259 minor resistance will turn bias back to the upside. In that case, corrective rise from 0.7020 would extend to 38.2% retracement of 0.8135 to 0.7020 at 0.7446 before completion.


In the bigger picture, a medium term bottom is in place at 0.7020 ahead of 0.6826 key support (2016 low). Stronger rebound might be seen to correct the whole fall from 0.8135 high. But we’d expect strong resistance from 0.7500 support turned resistance to limit upside. Medium term fall from 0.8135 should resume and extend to take on 0.6826 low at a later stage, after the correction from 0.7020 completes.
