Barclays trade for the week ahead: Short AUDJPY

FX:AUDJPY   Australian Dollar / Japanese Yen
37 0 1

We expect China’s PMI to remain in contraction territory and anticipate a below-consensus decline in the Caixin PMI (48.0, versus consensus 48.1, previous 48.2). Weaker data from China are likely to weigh on China-exposed currencies such as AUD. On the other hand, although we expect no rate cut at the RBA’s meeting, we believe that the weak inflation outlook and the relative overvaluation of AUD will require easier financial conditions and see a risk that RBA rhetoric will be tilted toward an accommodative bias.

From a technical perspective, we are overall bearish for AUDJPY             . Given the stretched condition of daily momentum studies, we would prefer to use counter-trend upticks as an opportunity to sell at better levels. A confluence of resistance in the 86.35 area provides nearby selling interest. A move below our initial downside targets in the 83.50 area would encourage our bearish view for a move lower in range toward next targets near 81.45.
