EUR/JPY is on shaky ground
Information is not investment advice
The euro is fundamentally weak: the recent economic figures from the euro area were quite disappointing. Such weakness has prevented EUR/JPY from getting back above 120.10 (61.8% Fibo retracement of the 2016-2018 advance). The pair formed two doji candlesticks on W1. Although there is a chance that the euro will keep consolidating above the support at 117.50 and make yet another go at 120.00, the break below this support will trigger a bigger selloff. The downside target will be at 115.35 (78.6% Fibo).
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
