- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 149.11, 147.76, 145.59
- Resistance: 151.30, 153.07, 154.84
The Euro looks poised to continue higher against Japanese Yen, with buyers now aiming to extend above the 151.00 figure. Near-term resistance is at 151.30, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 153.07. Alternatively, a turn below the 23.6% Fib at 149.11 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 147.76.
Entering long looks compelling from a purely technical perspective but we will tactically opt to pass on the trade. We are concerned that year-end capital flows may fuel a Yen recovery. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for the time being.
