Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Short at 137.12
  • Support: 136.09-22, 134.91-135.14, 133.96
  • Resistance:137.48, 138.02-27, 138.80

The Euro declined against the Japanese Yen as expected following the appearance of a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term support is in the 136.09-22 area, marked by the 23.6%Fibonacci expansion and the February 4 low, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing a falling channel floor at 135.14 and the 38.2% level at 134.91. Alternatively, a reversal above rising trend line support-turned-resistance set from early August at 137.57 clears the way for a test of the August 1 high at 138.00, followed by the channel top at 138.27.

We entered short EURJPY at 137.12, initially targeting 136.22. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 138.02. We will take profit on half of the position and move to stop-loss breakeven once the first objective is reached.
