Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 137.25, 136.11-30, 135.60
  • Resistance:137.80, 138.69, 139.41

The Euro moved higher against the Japanese Yen as expected after prices produced a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 137.80, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 138.69. Alternatively, a turn below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 137.13clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% threshold at 136.58.

The ECB looks to be the most dovish of the leading central banks, putting the Euro at a disadvantage against its major counterparts. With that in mind, we will opt not to pursue a long position and wait for the bounce to produce a selling opportunity.
