EUR/JPY: bouncing down again?
Information is not investment advice
Since the beginning of December, EUR/JPY has been going sideways. The channel it is contained in has the upper side in the range between 126.50 and 126.65, and the downside 125.90-126.00. Both sides have already seen the price bounce off so the validity of this channel is pretty high. Currently, the price is in the middle of it, having reversed downwards once again.
In the mid-term, the current zone of the currency pair performance is the tactical high ground: EUR/JPY was there in the summer and descended to below 123.00-124.00. That means there is a high probability that EUR/JPY does the same again. That’s why watch the downside of the channel 125.900-126.00: if it gets crossed, very likely there will be further bearish movement.
Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January.
