AUD/JPY trades below 86.00

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The AUD/JPY pair, which is increasingly being tracked to gauge overall sentiment in the markets, is trading sideways just below 86.00 levels.

Supported by hourly 200-MA

The AUD bears have had a tough time pushing the spot below its hourly 200-MA in the overnight trade. Moreover, the moderate gains on the Wall Street kept the Yen bulls at the bay. Meanwhile, a slightly stronger CNY daily fix by the PBOC also added to the positive sentiment in the Aussie and other Asian currencies.

At the moment, the S&P futures are ticking lower, hinting at a risk-averse bias. A follow through in Europe could motivate the Yen bulls and push the AUD/JPY pair below its hourly 200-MA.

AUD/JPY Technical Levels
