- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 135.81, 134.92, 133.48
- Resistance:137.26, 138.43, 139.60
The Euro continues to push upward against the Japanese Yen but negative RSI divergence warns of ebbing upside momentum. Near-term resistance is at 137.26, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 138.43. Alternatively, turn below the 23.6% Fib at 135.81 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% expansion at 134.92.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
