All Well in Euroland? EUR/USD Needs 1.3770/80, EUR/JPY Needs 141.55

Talking Points:

- EURUSD clears important 1.3770 hurdle.

- EURJPY must close above 141.45 for bulls to reengage the trend.

- US economic data on Friday unlikely to dislocate unless significant divergence.

The EURUSD has been frustrating the past few days - mainly because it's been chopping around in a tight ~100-pip range since mid-February. Although the pair broke 1.3680 to the downside earlier this week, failure to close below on Wednesday and a Hammer reversal pattern on Thursday has helped carry EURUSD to fresh yearly highs.

In EURJPY, price has already been rejected by the 140.80/141.45 zone this week, and we look to this area of interest over the past two months as a necessary hurdle before bulls reengage the longer-term uptrend.
