EUR-JPY: Reverses Gains, Looks Lower - TheStreet

By Mohammed Isah of

EUR-JPY: With a reversal of the cross' two-day gain in progress in early trading today, continued vulnerability of further downside weakness remains toward the 128.77 level, its Dec. 9 low, where a break will allow for more downside weakness toward the 126.83 level, its Nov. 26 low.

The 126.83 level is the trigger for the resumption of its decline initiated from the 134.53 level. If a loss of there occurs, it will pave the way for additional downside toward the 124.37 level, its April 28 low. However, if EUR-JPY's Dec. 11 high at 131.59 is violated, focus will then turn to the 134.53 level, its Dec 4 high, with a loss of there resuming its recovery from the 126.83 level toward the 135.37 level, its Nov 10 high. On the whole, EUR-JPY remains susceptible to the downside toward the 128.77 level while below the 131.59 level.
