FOREX Trading: EURJPY Nears Short Term Target

DailyFX

Combine the EURUSD and USDJPY pictures, and you get quite the bearish EURJPY painting. Shorts over the last few days are in good shape but expect a market response at/near 10157. This level is defined by the 100% extension of the 10459-10217 decline and intersects channel support today. Additional levels of interest are the 38.2% retracement of the rally from 9411, at 10060 and the 161.8% extension of the mentioned bear leg at 10008. 10240 and 10280 are estimated resistance levels.

AUDUSD and NZDUSD-a first attempt to short NZDUSD was stopped at breakeven last night but both commodity crosses are showing signs of exhaustion (intraday JS Spikes) at important levels (10494 is the 100% extension of the rally from 10148 in AUDUSD and 8299 is the 9/28 JS Spike close in NZDUSD). My interest is piqued and I’ll be monitoring both pairs closely.
