- EUR/JPY Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 139.97 (23.6% Fib exp.), 139.24 (horizontal pivot)
- Resistance: 140.71 (38.2% Fib exp.), 141.30 (50% Fib exp.)
The Euro recoiled upward into a familiar range, erasing what at first appeared like a breakout against the Japanese Yen two days ago. Prices are now challenging the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 140.71, with a break above that exposing the 50% level at 141.30. Alternatively, a turn back below the 23.6% Fib at 139.97 opens the door for another test of horizontal shelf support at 139.24.
Prices are too close to relevant resistance to justify a long position on risk/reward grounds. On the other hand, a short trade assuming resistance will hold is premature absent a defined reversal signal. We will continue to stand aside for now.
