Aussie catches a ride on Monday. A look at the 13 February AUDJPY Technical Analysis shows that the pair’s decline is halted for now. What else is revealed in this analysis?
13 February, GKFX – AUD/JPY is pushing higher during the overnight session, testing into 85.50 ahead of the Tokyo market open.
The Aussie has managed to halt the slide yesterday, trading up steadily through Monday’s markets. Risk aversion coupled with a dovish stance on rates by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has seen AUD/USD decline at an accelerating pace for three straight weeks, as the Aussie softens on continued sluggish economic growth for the island continent.
The Yen continues to gain as the market’s safe haven of choice, despite continued rhetoric from the Bank of Japan (BoJ) desperately trying to talk down the Japanese currency from its lofty valuation.
Aussie unemployment on Friday
This week will be quiet for both the Aussie and the Yen, at least until Friday. Australia will be dropping their Unemployment Rate and Employment Change figures on Friday at 01:30 GMT.
The Aussie has struggled to make new ground lately thanks to hesitating language from the RBA, influenced by middling economic data for the country. A positive beat to employment numbers could give the Aussie the boost it needs to bring the RBA closer to rate change territory.
