AUD has been dominating over JPY this week in light of upbeat high impact economic reports, supporting the gains. Recently, Australia’s Employment Change report was published with a significant increase to 61.6k from the previous figure of 7.8k which was expected to increase to 18.1k and Unemployment Rate remained unchanged at 5.4% as expected. The positive economic report from Australia helped the currency to gain momentum, so the aussie has trimmed earlier losses against JPY. On the other hand, JPY has been showing a mixed dynamic amid economic reports released this week that resulted in weak bearish pressure in the pair. Today, Japan’s Tenkan Manufacturing Index report was published with an increase to 25 from the previous figure of 22 which was expected to be at 24 and Tenkan Non-Manufacturing Index was published unchanged which was expected to increase to 24. The mixed economic reports quite confused the market sentiment, but AUD seems to have taken over quite well and is expected to climb even higher in the coming days. As for the current scenario, AUD is expected to gain further against JPY in the short term quite well unless any high impact positive economic report from Japan injects some volatility and bearish pressure in the market.
Now let us look at the technical chart. The price is currently residing above the support area of 84.40 to 85.40 and dynamic level of 20 EMA after some correction and volatility inside the area. As the price remains above the support area, the bullish bias is expected to continue with target towards 87.40 resistance area.
