- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 127.63, 126.08, 124.79
- Resistance:128.58, 130.13, 131.38
The Euro is waiting for direction cues as prices tread water above the 127.00 figure against the Japanese Yen. Near-term resistance is at 128.58, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 130.13. Alternatively, turn below the 14.6% Fib at 127.63 opens the door for a challenge of the April 14 low at 126.08.
Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify taking a trade on a long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
