- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 132.80, 131.52, 130.23
- Resistance:133.69, 134.38, 135.36
The Euro declined against the Japanese Yen as expected, falling for a sixth consecutive day to make for the worst losing streak in nearly three years. Near-term support is at 132.80, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 131.52. Alternatively, push above support-turned-resistance at 133.69 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib at 134.38.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now, waiting for price action to offer a more compelling opportunity down the road.
