EUR/JPY Technical Analysis – May Bottom Under Pressure

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis – May Bottom Under Pressure

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 138.13-33 (May 21 low, 23.6% Fib exp.), 137.70 (38.2% Fib exp.)
  • Resistance: 139.16 (23.6% Fib ret.), 139.79 (38.2% Fib exp.)

The Euro turned lower against the Japanese Yen once again having found resistance above the 139.00 figure. Near-term support is in the 138.13-33 area, marked by the May 21 low and the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break downward on a daily closing basis exposes the 38.2% level at 137.70. Alternatively, a reversal above the 23.6% Fib retracement at 139.16 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 139.79.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices sitting squarely at support. On the other hand, taking up the long side seems premature absent a defined bullish reversal signal. We will remain flat for now.
