- Support: 134.67, 133.81, 132.04
- Resistance:137.64, 139.95, 142.27
The Euro may be readying to turn lower anew against the Japanese Yen anew having put in a bearish Evening Star candle pattern after bouncing as expected. A daily close below channel support at 134.67 exposes the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 133.81. Alternatively, a reversal above the 38.2% Fib retracement at 137.64 opens the door for a test of the 50% threshold at 139.95.
Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
