Top Trade Idea 2020: Long EUR/JPY – Chart Suggests a Bullish Set-up in the Making

Top Trade Idea 2020: Long EUR/JPY – Chart Suggests a Bullish Set-up in the Making

Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist


My forex-pair to watch for a longer-term set-up in 2020 is long EUR/JPY with the charts currently suggesting that the heavy sell-off initiated at the start of 2018 is finally breaking down.

While the Japanese Yen continues to benefit from its risk-off status as the US-China trade war rumbles on, it is likely that a resolution - or even part-resolution - to this will be found early 2020 with neither side benefitting from trade tariffs, whatever they say. This will weaken JPY.
