EUR/JPY in Free Fall Ahead of BoJ- Bearish Sub 134

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook

  • EURJPY breaks below monthly open / opening range- Bearish
  • Targeting 61.8% retracement at 131.80 & key support confluence 131.23
  • Shorts favored below today’s high at 133.54- bearish invalidation
  • Breach above monthly open at 133.97 needed to shift focus higher
  • Daily RSI support trigger break / break sub-40 – bearish
  • Key Event Risk Ahead: Japan Industrial Production tonight and Jobless Rate & CPI on Thursday followed by the BoJ

EURJPY 30min

EUR/JPY in Free Fall Ahead of BoJ- Bearish Sub 134

Notes: EURJPY is trading within the confines of a well-defined descending pitchfork off the October 14th high with today’s FOMC sell-off rebounding off the median line into the close of U.S. trade. The focus remains weighted to the downside while within this formation / 133.54 with a near-term support confluence seen just lower at 131.80. Key support rests with the 100% extension of the decline off the June high at 131.23.

Bottom line: looking to sell rallies / short triggers while below today’s high with a breach above 133.89/97 needed to shift the focus back to the long-side of the pair. A quarter of the daily ATR yields profit targets of 25-28pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into the end of week / month with key data out of Japan & the BoJ monetary policy decision likely to fuel added volatility in yen crosses.
