Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 137.65 (Jun 12 low), 137.41 (channel floor), 136.22 (Feb 4 low)
  • Resistance: 138.55 (14.6% Fib ret.), 139.10 (23.6% Fib ret.)

Euro is edging higher against the Japanese Yen as expected after prices completed a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Positive RSI divergence further supports the case for recovery. Resistance begins at 138.55, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement. A daily close above this barrier targets the 23.6% level at 139.10. Support is at 137.65, the June 12 low, followed by the falling channel floor at 137.41 and the February 4 low at 136.22.

We are tactically opting not to pursue a long position. The Euro remains hobbled by the most dovish central bank among the majors, putting it at a distinct disadvantage. With that in mind, we will treat any further gains from here as an emerging selling opportunity.
