EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Treading Water Above 137.00

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Treading Water Above 137.00

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 137.17, 136.22, 135.04
  • Resistance: 138.12, 139.30, 140.03

The Euro has stalled at key chart supportagainst the Japanese Yen, with prices awaiting new direction cues. Near-term support is at 137.17, marked by a formerly broken channel top and the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 136.22. Alternatively, a reversal above the 38.2% Fib at 138.12 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% expansion at 139.30.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
