After a lot of consolidation and a bit of a rally versus the dollar, AUD pairs started the week on shaky footing when China printed weaker than expected inflation data.

The Aussie sold off across the board, chalking up the steepest losses to the franc, yen and euro, while also falling behind its comdoll buddies.

Yen pairs were also on the move, with USD/JPY resuming its rally close to 143.00 mark despite rising JGB yields before retreating.

This pair looks prime for another leg lower, as it just broke below a short-term rectangle pattern!

Note that the formation spans a little over 50 pips, so the resulting selloff could be of at least the same height.

AUD/JPY is now down to S1 (94.66) and might still be aiming for the next support zones at S2 (94.27) and S3 (93.80) next.

However, a return to risk-on flows or JPY weakness could lift the pair back up to the area of interest near the pivot point (95.12) or higher.

There’s not much in the way of top-tier catalysts in the upcoming New York session, so AUD traders might have to hold out until the next Asian session for the release of Australia’s NAB business confidence index.

Take note that AUD/JPY moves an average of 95 pips per day, so make sure you keep this in mind when setting entries and exits!
