- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 140.35 (rising trend line)
- Resistance: 141.75 (38.2% Fib exp.), 142.89 (falling trend line)
The Euro may be on the verge of a reversal higher against the Japanese Yen after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern above support at a rising trend line set from mid-February. Near-term resistance is at 141.75, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that targeting a downward-sloping barrier at 142.89. Trend line support is now at 140.35.
Prices are too close to relevant resistance to justify a long position from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal argues against taking up the short side. We will remain flat for now.
