Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 140.00 (50% Fib ret.), 139.11 (61.8% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 140.89 (38.2% Fib ret.), 141.37 (rising trend line)

The Euro is facing renewed selling pressure after a brief correction higher, dropping to support at 140.00 against the Japanese Yen. This psychological barrier is reinforced by the 50% Fibonacci retracement. A break downward on a daily closing basis initially exposes the 61.8% level at 139.11. Alternatively, a reversal above the 38.2% Fib at 140.89 clears the way for a retest of the trend line, now at 141.37.

Prices are too close to relevant support to justify a short position at current levels from a risk/reward perspective. We will stand aside for now, looking for a break downward or a corrective bounce to yield a selling opportunity.
