EUR/JPY drew support from 131.69 and rebounded last week but it’s after all staying in recently established range of 131.69/134.39. Initial bias remains neutral this week first. On the upside, decisive break of 134.39 high will confirm up trend resumption. In such case, EUR/JPY should target 141.04 long term resistance. However, firm break of 131.69 will be an early sign of medium term reversal and will target 127.55 key support level.
In the bigger picture, medium term rise from 109.03 (2016 low) is seen as at the same degree as the down trend from 149.76 (2014 high) to 109.03 (2016 low). 61.8% retracement of 149.76 to 109.03 at 134.20 is already met. Sustained break there will pave the way to key long term resistance zone at 141.04/149.76. However, break of 127.55 support will argue that the medium term trend has reversed and will turn outlook bearish for deeper fall.
In the long term picture, at this point, there is no clear indication that rise from 109.03 is resuming that from 94.11. Hence, we’d be cautious on topping below 149.76 to extend range trading. Nonetheless, firm break of 149.76 will indicates strong underlying buying. In such case, EUR/JPY will target 100% projection of 94.11 to 149.76 from 109.03 at 164.68.
