- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 136.38, 135.70, 134.85
- Resistance:138.02, 138.79, 139.74
The Euro advanced for a third consecutive day against the Japanese Yen to challenge a pivotal chart resistance point. A daily close above the intersection of the August 1 high and a falling channel top at 138.02 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 138.79. Alternatively, a reversal below horizontal pivot support at 136.38 opens the door for a challenge of the September 8 low at 135.70.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices sitting at resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now.
