FXStreet (Moscow) - EUR/JPY moved slightly higher during Asian hours and reached the current intraday high at 139.78 against the opening level of 139.40, though the trading activity remains subdued as Japan is closed for holiday.

EUR ignores negative macro news

It seems that Euro traders looked the other way when France and Italy published their weak industrial output figures for December, as EUR/JPY went on consolidating in a narrow range. Actually, those reports are a bad sign for the 4 quarter GDP in Eurozone published on Friday, but who cares when there is a huge risk event in the form of Yellen testimony looming on the horizon. Today European economic calendar is empty, so the cross movements will be defined by position adjustment and general market sentiments. Keep an eye at the stock market as lower stock markets may push the Japanese currency higher. The key levels to watch: 139.80 on the upside and 139.20on the downside.
