EURJPY Scalp Chart

Notes: The EURJPY has been a popular pair in the DailyFX on Demand trading room and while a topside break of the monthly opening range does suggest we maintain our bias heading into the close of the month, the pair has now encountered critical resistance around the 141-handle. This region is defined by the 50% retracement of the decline off the December high, the 61.8% Fibonacci extension from the ascent off the monthly low and a longer-dated 61.8% retracement taken from the descent from the 2008 high.

Our immediate focus is on a break of the weekly opening range which is forming just below this key threshold. A topside break/close above 141.17 with RSI conviction keeps our bias weighted to the topside heading into the close of the week with such a scenario warranting long exposure into subsequent resistance targets. A move sub 140.33 puts us neutral with a break below 140.07 shifting our near-term focus to the downside.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
