    • AUD/JPY finds strong support at 'Triangle Base' at 85.50, the pair is struggling to break below.
    • Price action on the day has retraced brief dip below 85.50 and is currently at 85.83 levels.
    • Wall Street's recovery overnight which has supported Asian markets today (which are trading largely flat) keep yen demand in check.
    • Reports earlier today which showed a rise in China's iron ore imports likely to have kept the Aussie slightly bid.
    • AUD/JPY edges higher on the day, up 0.38% as we write. We see weakness only on break below 85.50.
    • Technical studies support downside. Price action has broken below major moving averages and daily cloud.
    • Breach at 'Triangle Base' raises scope for test of 84.66 (Dec 7 low). Bearish invalidation on retrace above 200-DMA.

    Recommendation: Watch for decisive break below 86.50 for further weakness, target 85/ 84.70/ 84.35.
