    • AUD/JPY halts recovery from 6-month lows at 83.32, trades 0.24% lower on day.
    • The pair finds stiff resistance at 4H 55-EMA (84.85), we see further upside only on break above.
    • Technical studies support weakness in the pair. RSI nicely converging with price action.
    • Price has dipped below major EMAs on intraday charts and major MAs are biased lower.
    • We see scope for test of channel base at 83.75. Breach there could see further weakness.

    Support levels - 84.32 (5-DMA), 84, 83.75 (channel base), 83.32 (Feb 14 low)

    Resistance levels - 84.68 (23.6% Fib retrace of 89.089 to 83.322 fall), 85, 85.52 (38.2% Fib)

    Call update: We had advised a short call (https://www.econotimes.com/FxWirePro-AUD-JPY-tests-channel-base-support-decisive-break-below-to-see-further-weakness-1155124).
