AUD/JPY Ranging Between 94.50 and 95.30

AUD/JPY has been consolidating in a narrow range for the past 2 weeks between 94.50 and 95.30 (80-pips).

In the 1H chart, you can see that this consolidation followed a bearish swing from 96.23. You can also see that duing this consolidation period, price has been holding below the 200-hour SMA. 

Therefore, In the short-term the AUD/JPY is neutral with a bearish bias. A break below 94.50 should open up another bearish swing in the short-term. A breakout projection could be the length of the range (80 pips), which would target the 93.70 area.

However, as you can see in the 4H chart, there will probably be some support as early as 94.00, or wherever price might meet a rising trendline that comes up from 88.25, the February and 2014 low. If the trendline support breaks, then traders might trade AUD/JYP down towards the 93.00 handle.
