Hello peeps! I haven’t much about the EURJPY as of late so here it is now. On its daily canvas, you can see that it has failed to move past the resistance around 113.40 for the last couple of weeks. Interestingly, this mark happens to fall in line almost perfectly with the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level that I drew. Presently, the pair is trading around 110.00. In my view, it is on track to meet its 2010 low again. A presence of a bearish divergence, where the price registers lower highs and the stochsastics go higher and higher, also suggest a likely down-move. Judging by the height of its present range, it could fall by another 400 pips if it manages to break the 108.00 support. On the positive note, a break above the 38.2% Fib could send it a bit higher towards to 50% level.
The general prices of equities and currencies generally have been stuck within a range this week due to the mixed results from the economic data that came out of the US. US home sales were and durable goods were actually unexpectedly weaker than anticipated which added some concerns that the present global recovery is not that strong as initially thought. In any case, no other major economic reports are on deck today as the US leaders already managed to agree on their plan to overhaul the country’s financial system. The US’s final GDP for the 1Q is set to be released to no changes on the previous tally are expected. If, however, the account surprises us on the downside, the safer currencies like the yen and the USD would likely get some favor from the traders. If not, most major pairs would more likely just trade in a range until they sway in either direction in the coming week.
