EUR/JPY is preparing to move
Information is not investment advice
EUR/JPY has been moving up since the start of September. At the beginning of October, it formed a higher low. The pair is currently consolidating between 61.8% Fibo of the July-September decline at 120.45 and the 78.6% Fibo level at 121.75. All in all, EUR/JPY is at the upper edge of its channel. It looks like there’s a need for correction to the downside. The decline below 120.40 will open the way down to the support at 119.80 (100-day MA).
On the upside, the next obstacle above 121.75 is at 122.20 (200-day MA). So far, the price action in line with the bearish harmonic “Bat” pattern: that means that the pair may get to test levels around 122.20/50, but then turn lower. As a result, it may be possible to pursue higher levels on positive news from the euro area, though one will have to be careful with that.
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. What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
