Talking Points

- EURJPY trend still in place after recent bounce.

- Hammer formation on four-hour chart points to a short-term correction.

- If you’re looking for trading ideas, look at our technical analysis page and speculative sentiment index.

On the daily EUR/JPY chart, the recent short-term rally in the EUR is still intact with the September 21 to 22 lows of 112.08/112.09 the long-term target. Short-term resistance may be seen at the 23.6% Fibonacci level, currently sitting at 118.70.

The short-term picture however may become clouded though by the appearance of a Hammer candlestick which could reverse the recent trend and push the pair back to the April 3 high of 119.06. Above here, the March 29 high of 120.45 comes into view. A failure at the hammer low of 117.36 opens further downside.
