- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 137.51, 135.33, 133.56
- Resistance:140.15, 141.50, 142.69
The Euro continues to wait for directional guidance against the Japanese Yen as prices tread water above the 137.00 figure. Near-term support is at 137.51, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 135.33. Alternatively, a move above the 14.6% Fib at 140.15 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% expansion at 141.50.
Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
