- AUD/JPY above 88.00 levels.
- Through a cluster of Fib levels.
- Australia motor vehicles number goes unnoticed.
As of writing, the currency pair is well bid at 88.18 levels. The uptick seen today is largely due to the 0.17 percent rise in the USD/JPY. Meanwhile, the AUD/USD is flat-lined around 0.7964. That said, it was the sharp rise in the AUD/USD pair (0.78 to 0.7979) that helped AUD/JPY stage a solid rebound from 87.21 levels (100-day MA on Jan. 10).
The official data released in Australia showed motor vehicle sales rose 4.5 percent month-on-month and 6.7 percent year-on-year (compared to previous figures of 0.1 percent and 2.1 percent). However, the data has not had any impact on the AUD pairs.
Ahead in the day, the cross may remain well bid as copper prices are trading near four-year highs. Further, the Bloomberg commodity index is up more than 5 percent on a monthly basis. Still, a pullback cannot be ruled out as analysts believe the rally in AUD/USD is overstretched.
