- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 128.00, 126.85, 125.69
- Resistance:130.63, 131.79, 132.94
The Euro has rebounded to retest the top of a now-familiar range above the 130.00 figure against the Japanese Yen. Near-term support is at 128.00, 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 126.85. Alternatively, turn above the 38.2% Fib retracement at 130.63 opens the door for a test of the 50% threshold at 131.79.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
