- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 138.86, 136.95, 135.33
- Resistance:141.20, 142.55, 144.73
The Euro continues to digest gains against the Japanese Yen having tagged a five-month high above the 141.00 figure. Near-term support is at 138.86, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 136.95-137.51 area (May 18 high, 23.6% level). Alternatively, a push above the 14.6% Fib expansion at 141.20 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 142.55.
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.
