EUR/JPY Technical Analysis – Treading Water Above 140.00

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 140.54 (rising trend line)
  • Resistance: 141.75 (38.2% Fib exp.), 142.70 (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 a rising trend line set from February. Near-term resistance is at 141.75, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that targeting a downward-sloping barrier at 142.70. Trend line support is now at 140.54.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade from a risk/reward perspective. Furthermore, follow-through on the Piercing Line has been absent for some time now, raising questions about the setup’s potency. We will stand aside for now and monitor future developments for opportunities.
