EUR/JPY DAILY PRICE CHART (NOV 2018 - MAY 22, 2019)

EUR/JPY Price Daily Chart 22-05-19

A closer look at the EUR/JPY daily chart shows the price breaking above the downtrend line originated from April 17 high at 126.81 and closing above 123.10 moving to the higher trading range (123.10 -124.20). This bullish development could entice the pair to rally towards the high end of mentioned range. However, a series of daily and weekly resistances at 123.64, 123.88 and 124.09 must be cleared first. Any close above 124.20 would likely move the pair to a higher trading range and pave the way to a rally towards 124.90, contingent on clearing the weekly resistance at 124.54.

Today the pair probed lower and found support at the low end of the trading range mentioned above. EUR/JPY may edge lower if the price closes below the zone 123.10 -123.05 hinting at a move towards 122.50. Supports levels at 122.92 (daily support at the downtrend line mentioned above) and 122.61 need to be kept in focus.

EUR/JPY 2 HOURS PRICE CHART (MAY 22, 2019)

EUR/JPY Price 2H Chart 22-05-19

Looking into EUR/JPY 2-hour chart, we notice the price printed a high today of 123.51. Any break above this threshold could start a bullish sentiment towards yesterday’s high located at 123.75. However, the daily resistance mentioned above at 123.63 needs to be watched.

EUR/JPY could rally towards 123.75 and fall after to form a double top pattern where the neck line resides at 123.06. If the pair breaks and remains below the neck line this suggests EUR/JPY would likely point lower towards 122.40. Support levels at 122.92, 122.78 and the zone (the low of May 21 at 122.67 - Daily support at 122.62). The end of the trading range at 122.50 is also worth monitoring.

The above scenario may still be valid even if the price does not form a second top. In this case a break below 123.05 would start a bearish momentum hinting towards 122.50. Support levels and zones mentioned above need to be monitored closely.
