- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 133.65, 132.20, 131.03
- Resistance:134.54, 135.98, 136.61
The Euro may be carving out a top against the Japanese Yen after having produced a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracementat 133.65 exposes the 38.2% level at 132.20. Alternatively, reversal above the 14.6% Fib at 134.54 clears the way for a test of the May 7 high at 135.98.
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.
