Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 141.11 (rising trend line)
  • Resistance: 142.15 (falling trend line), 143.46 (50% Fib exp.)

The Euro continues to tread water against the Japanese Yen, with prices oscillating in a narrow range around the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 141.75.Near-term resistance is marked by a downward-sloping trend line set from late December (now at 142.15), with a break above that exposing the 50% level at 143.46.Support lines up at a rising trend line in play since mid-February, currently at 140.11.

Prices are wedged too tightly between near-term technical levels to justify a trade on the long or short side of the argument from a risk/reward perspective. We will remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a more attractive setup to present itself.
