- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 130.13, 128.00, 126.85
- Resistance:131.79, 132.94, 134.37
The Euro is digesting gains after securing an upside breakout against the Japanese Yen on a breach of resistance dating back to December 2014. Near-term resistance is at 131.79, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 132.94. Alternatively, turn below the January 26 low at 130.13 clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 128.00.
Our long-term outlook calls for broad-based Euro weakness. With that in mind, we will treat any on-coming gains as corrective, looking to enter short at a more attractive level rather than a seeing the move higher as a buying opportunity. In the meantime, we remain flat.
