- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 137.17, 136.26, 135.58
- Resistance:138.08, 139.22, 141.04
The Euro is working on a third consecutive advance against the Japanese Yen, with prices trying to clear a path above the 139.00 figure. A daily close above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracementat 138.08 exposes the 76.4% level at 139.22. Alternatively, a move below the 50% Fib at 137.17 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% retracement at 136.26.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
