AUD/JPY Price Analysis:Bulls Pause, pair remains steady above 108.00

  • AUD/JPY moderates, hovering steadily above the 108.00 mark, wrapping up a week with a 1% gain.
  • Buyers are taking a breather and keeping the cross in cycle highs.
  • A healthy correction shouldn’t be taken off the table.

In the trading session of Friday, the AUD/JPY pair curtailed its recent bullish momentum but managed to close the week around 108.50 level. This slight pullback, most likely an effect of traders booking profits, has not blown out the bullish shine of the pair’s weekly performance, winning a close of 1%.

In the day’s performance, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) for the AUDJPY settled at 80, translating into a flattening but still pointing towards an overbought scenario. This may indicate the potential of a forthcoming correction in the near term. Concurrently, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) painted a scenario of flattening green bars, mirroring a cooling of the robust bullish momentum.
