AUD/JPY Short-term Recovery to 76.00

AUD/JPY has dropped 5.5% from August highs finding a price zone where major reversals have started. Also coincides with June close – July open price.


Watching closely for trend line break and a hold above for confirmation to enter.

Fundamentally it is quite difficult to go against the Japanese Yen for its haven qualities in global uncertainty, but with that 5.5% drop, a bounce opportunity is possible for AUD/JPY.

The Risk:
As traders, it is your job to mitigate the risk and only trade structures that provide high probability and great reward to risk ratios.
If you are not comfortable with defined exit levels, experiment with Moving Averages to help set solid exit rules to protect your capital.
IF: Price breaks below 74.00 – this would suggest the structure is not in our favour and would be wise to reduce exposure or close the trade until a solid signal gives us reasons to re-enter.
Reward / Reward Targets:
Optimal Entry 74.450 – Target 1 76.00 = 3x Reward to Risk
Optimal Entry 74.450 – Target 2 76.800 = 4.6x Reward to Risk
Supporting Entry 74.500 – Target 1 76.00 = 2.6x Reward to Risk
Supporting Entry 74.500 – Target 2 76.800 = 4x Reward to Risk
