Forex: EUR/JPY Technical Analysis – Euro Drops Most in Six Weeks

Forex: EUR/JPY Technical Analysis – Euro Drops Most in Six Weeks

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 142.63 (76.4% Fib exp.), 141.89 (61.8% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 143.82 (100% Fib exp.), 145.01 (123.6% Fib exp.)

The Euro finally produced downside follow-through against the Japanese Yen as expected, with prices slumping the most in six weeks. Prices are testing support at 140.89, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that exposing a rising trend line at 140.33 and the 50% level squarely at the 140.00 figure.

Prices are too close to relevant support to justify a short position from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, a viable reversal signal arguing in favor of a long trade is absent for the time being.We will remain on the sidelines until a more actionable setup presents itself.
