EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Digesting Losses Above 134.00

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Digesting Losses Above 134.00

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 134.38, 132.80, 131.52
  • Resistance:135.36, 136.95, 138.41

The Euro turned lower against the Japanese Yen as expected after negative RSI divergence hinted at ebbing upside momentum. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracementat 134.38 exposes the 38.2% level at 132.80. Alternatively, move above the 14.6% Fib at 137.26 clears the way for a test of the May 18 high at 136.95.

Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
