The Aussie has been able to stay above 82.00/50, another key resistance. The next medium-term resistance could be seen between the 86.00 - 86.50 area, that stubbornly capped the surge during the first and second quarter of 2016.
The rally might take breather soon before any upswing as it has surged close to 800 pips for a considerable short time.

*Pending any events on the Aussie side, the upward is steep and AUDJPY is exposed to possible profit taking. Furthermore, OPEC deal will force traders to reposition their portfolio.
