EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Familiar Range Still in Play

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Familiar Range Still in Play

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 132.48, 130.71, 127.84
  • Resistance:135.02, 137.64, 139.95

The Euro is stalling after attempting to rise against the Japanese Yen as expected following the appearance of a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is in the 134.77-135.02 area, marked by the October 14 low and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 137.64. Alternatively, a turn below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 138.48 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 130.71.

An actionable trade setup is absent at this point, arguing against committing to a directional bias on long or short side. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for a clear-cut trading opportunity to present itself in the days ahead.
