AUD/JPY Technical Analysis: lacks direction after China data, focus on today's close

The AUD/JPY pair is trading largely unchanged on the day at 78.60, having recovered from the session low of 78.28 a few minutes before press time, possibly on the back of an above-forecast China industrial production number. 

The daily chart, however, shows the pair lacks a clear direction, having created a doji candle on Friday. 

Daily chart

  • A close today above 79.11 (high of Friday's doji) would confirm bull doji continuation or continuation of the rally from recent lows below 72.00 and open up upside toward 80.00. 
  • A close below 78.38 (Friday's low), however, would imply bearish doji reversal.
