- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 143.80, 141.95, 140.11
- Resistance:145.57, 147.23, 148.64
The Euro resumed its down move against the Japanese Yen, with prices issuing the largest daily decline in two weeks. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 143.80 exposes the 50% level at 141.95. Alternatively, a reversal above support-turned-resistance at 145.57, the November 24 low, opens the door for a test of the 14.6% Fib expansion at 147.23.
While entering short is tempting from a purely technical perspective, we will tactically opt to stand aside. Thin pre-holiday liquidity conditions hint follow-through on current price action may prove lackluster and we will wait for the onset of 2015 before committing to a directional bias.
