AUDJPY dropped to lowest level, signaling the risk sentiment is worsening on escalating trade tensions. However, is there room for a further drop in the JPY cross? What does the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) shows?
7 September, OctaFX – The AUDJPY pair fell to 79.06 a few minutes ago – the lowest level since November 2016 and was last seen trading at 79.22.
AUDJPY Drops to Lowest Level
The sell-off is likely associated with the escalating US-China trade tensions and could be considered a sign of impending risk aversion in the global equities as the JPY cross is widely considered a risk barometer.
More importantly, the 14-day RSI is holding a few points above 30.00, meaning the pair could extend the decline further, albeit after a brief bear breather as the RSI on the hourly chart is reporting oversold conditions.
That said, a strong corrective rally could be seen if the US delays the fresh round of tariffs on Chinese goods.
