EUR/JPY Appears Longer Term Bullish; EUR/USD May Correct Lower

EUR/JPY Appears Longer Term Bullish; EUR/USD May Correct Lower

Jeremy Wagner, CEWA-M, Head of Education

This is a recording of a US Opening Bell webinar from May 8, 2017.

In today’s US Opening Bell webinar, we discussed technical patterns on key markets. We’ve been tracking EUR/JPY since mid-April and the break above the trend channel is a longer term bullish signal. Prices did finally tag our 124.00 target from when the initial pick was established and the near term impulsive move appears mature.

Many times, after a successful break of a trend line, prices double back and retest the broken trend line. In this case, the trend line is near 122 so we won’t be alarmed if prices did soften to 122 or possibly 120.

EUR/JPY was a market two of our analysts identified as a top trading opportunity of 2017. See what they say about EUR/JPY in this “Top Trading Opportunities of 2017” guide.

We previously wrote about EUR/USD on Friday before the French election and how the higher probability pattern appears to be lower. 1.0880 is a level where, if broken, may provide an early warning signal of additional losses.

GBP/USD may have some additional strength, though wave relationships exist not much further ahead of where price is now.

USD/JPY sentiment flipped for the first time since early January 2017. Though this trend may mirror EUR/JPY and be mature to the upside, if sentiment continues to hold as net short, then it could spell further gains.
