EUR/JPY Technical Analysis – Resistance Above 139.00 Held

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis – Resistance Above 139.00 Held

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 138.13 (May 21 low), 138.00
  • Resistance: 139.16 (23.6% Fib ret.), 139.79 (38.2% Fib exp.)

The Euro is attempting to launch a recovery against the Japanese Yen having found interim support above the 138.00 figure. Near-term resistance is at 139.16, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that aiming for the 38.2% level at 139.79. Initial support is at 138.13, the May 21 low, followed by the 138.00 handle.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices sitting squarely at relevant resistance. On the other hand, taking up the short side seems premature in the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal. We will remain on the sidelines for the time being.
