EUR/JPY 2-hour

EURJPY Correction to Favor Short Scalp Entries Sub-1.48

Notes:The reaction off the median line off the April 2013 lows backed by a break of a multi-week pitchfork off the October lows shifts our attention lower in the EURJPY. The pullback found support at the confluence of the 23.6% retracement off the October lows, the former 2013 high and the former upper median line parallel off the September low. Looking to sell this rebound towards the 1.48 handle with a break below the weekly opening range needed to open up the next swing lower. Note that the broader outlook remains constructive and as such we’ll look to treat this as a correction for now.

Bottom Line: look for an exhaustion high to sell with initial scalps targeting the weekly lows. A break sub-145.58 offers further conviction on our near-term outlook with such a scenario targeting subsequent support objectives into the 2013 high-day close at 144.50. A breach above 148.36 puts us neutral with a move surpassing last week’s highs putting the broader upside bias back in focus. Use caution heading into the weekly/monthly close with key data prints out of Germany & the Eurozone likely to fuel added volatility in EUR crosses.

* 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.
