- Support: 131.48, 129.71, 126.84
- Resistance:134.77, 137.64, 139.95
The Euro may have set a bottom above the 130.00 figure against the Japanese Yen after putting in a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Positive RSI divergence bolsters the case for an upside scenario. A daily close above the 134.13-77 area marked by the October 16 low and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement exposes the 38.2% level at 137.64. Alternatively, a reversal below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 131.48 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 129.71.
While the bullish chart setup is compelling, confirmation on a break through the bounds of the down trend carved out from early December highs remains absent. With that in mind, we will stand aside for now and wait for a more concrete opportunity before entering a trade.
