EUR-JPY: Headed Lower - TheStreet

By Mohammed Isah of


: The pair is entering its third day of weakness following its loss of momentum at the 134.53 level.

It appears headed for further declines toward 128.94.

A sustained penetration of that level will clear the way for further losses toward the July 8 low at 127.00, followed by 126.83, the Nov. 26 low.

The daily studies are trending lower and suggesting more weakness.

For the pair to head up again, it must break and hold above 134.53. From there it would target 135.37, its Nov. 10 high, and then pattern resistance at 138.30.

On the whole, with the EUR-JPY again outside its triangle pattern, further weakness is now envisaged toward 128.94 and possibly lower.
