    Source: FxWire Pro - Technicals / 23 Feb 2018 01:31:04   Eastern Standard Time

    • AUD/JPY hovers around channel base support, we see further weakness on break below.
    • The major has retraced brief break above 5-DMA and is extending weakness.
    • Technical studies support downside in the pair. RSI nicely converging with price action.
    • Weekly charts show bearish MACD line crossover on signal line which adds to bearish bias.
    • Next bear target lies at 83.37 (78.6% Fib) ahead of 81.78 (June 6th lows).
    • 20-DMA at 85.52 is major resistance. We see bearish invalidation only close above 86.57 (200 DMA).

    Support levels - 83.37 (78.6% Fib retrace of 81.486 to 90.305 rally), 82.73 (Apr 27 low), 81.77 (May 18 low)

    Resistance levels - 84.09 (5-DMA), 84.85 (61.8% Fib), 85, 85.52 (20-DMA)
