- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 133.81, 132.04, 129.17
- Resistance:137.64, 139.95, 142.27
The Euro may be preparing to resume its down trend against the Japanese Yen having produced a bearish Evening Star candle pattern. The outer layer of near-term support is at 133.81, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 132.04. Alternatively, a turn above the 38.2% Fib retracement at 137.64 clears the way for a challenge of the 50% threshold at 139.95.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
