Talking Points:

  • EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 141.08 (rising trend line)
  • Resistance: 142.18 (falling trend line), 143.46 (50% Fib exp.)

The Euro remains locked in tight congestion against the Japanese Yen, with prices flat-lining near the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 141.75.Initial resistance is found at afalling trend line set from late December (now at 142.18), with a daily close above that targeting the 50% level at 143.46.Near-term support comes in 141.08, marked by a rising trend line in play since mid-February.

Prices are wedged too close between relevant up- and down-side technical barriersto make a trade on either the long or the short side look attractive from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand on the sidelines until greater directional clarity emerges.
