    FXStreet (Guatemala) - AUD/JPY is at weekly lows, the lowest level since November 2012 and the outlook remains negative in the absence of stability in the markets. The Yen is favoured in times of uncertainty and 2016 has had plenty of that so far.

    USD/JPY has been under pressure from the get-go and broke away from the daily cluster of moving averages for a low of 116.68. There has been a minor recovery back onto the 118 handle but, the Aussie is also under pressure while the greenback is trading at its highest levels in over a decade. Investors are not looking for yield in this climate and are rather protecting their assets and that never bodes well for the cross.

    AUD/JPY levels

    Technically, to the downside, the 200 month SMA at 81.34 was broken to the degree that spot has made a fresh low of 81.16. 0.7939, the 3rd Oct 2012 weekly stick low comes as next level in the firing line. Only a recovery through 83.40 double top might alleviate immediate downside risks.
