The EUR/JPY Rally Looks Vulnerable

The EUR/JPY Rally Looks Vulnerable

After making a low on the year at 130.13, the EUR/JPY has been drifting higher, but the structure of this rally looks vulnerable. Let’s take a look at the charts.

137-137.50 will be a key resistance area which includes the 200-period SMA in the 4H chart, and a previous support/resistance¬†area. If price can hold above 134, it has upside to this area. Now, if the euro-yen breaks above 137.50, the next key resistance will be around 140-141, which involves the cluster of 200-, 100-, and 50-day SMAs, and a falling trendline coming down from December and 2014’s high of 149.55.

Now, if 134 does not hold, let’s start monitoring the 135 level as resistance. If a pullback fails to clear 135, the pressure should remain to the downside towards the lows on the year with risk of further¬†decline in continuation of the bearish trend in the past few months.
