EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Move to May High in the Cards?

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Move to May High in the Cards?

Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 135.65, 134.68, 132.80
  • Resistance:137.24, 138.52, 139.80

The Euro may be preparing to make a run toward monthly highs against the Japanese Yen after prices narrowly cleared chart resistance. A daily close above the 136.95-137.24 area (May 18 high, 38.2% Fibonacci expansion) exposes the 50% level at 138.52. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 135.65 clears the way for a test of the 14.6% expansion at 134.68.

Prices overcame resistance by a mere 5 pips. In the context of ATR at 124 pips, this seems exceptionally narrow, warning against betting on upside follow-through. With that in mind, we will opt not to enter long and wait for a more convincing setup to present itself.
