- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 129.17, 128.00, 126.85
- Resistance:130.63, 131.79, 132.94
The Euro declined against the Japanese Yen as expected after prices put in a Shooting Star candlestick at range resistance. A daily close below trend line support at 129.17 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 128.00. Alternatively, reversal above the 38.2% Fib retracement at 130.63 clears the way for a challenge of the 50% threshold at 131.79.
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.
