EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Topping Near 144.00 Figure?

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Topping Near 144.00 Figure?

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 141.83, 140.36, 139.17
  • Resistance: 143.32, 143.87, 144.80

The Euro may be carving out a top against the Japanese Yen marked by the formation of a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 141.83, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 140.36. Alternatively, a reversal above the 161.8% Fib expansion at 143.32 clears the way for a test of the 176.4% threshold at 143.89.

While a short position seems attractive from a purely technical perspective, we will tactically opt to stand aside. EURJPY is closely correlated with the S&P 500 stock index – a proxy for risk appetite – meaning the currency pair may run into sentiment-linked volatility driven by the closely-watched US Employment report due in the coming hours. That has potential to overwhelm technical considerations and we’re leery of committing to a directional bias until after event risk passes.
