EUR/JPY Weekly Outlook

EUR/JPY dipped to 129.23 last week but formed a short term bottom and recovered. Initial bias remains neutral this week for consolidation first. In case of stronger rise, we’d be cautious on strong resistance from 38.2% retracement of 137.49 to 129.34 at 132.45 to limit upside. Break of 129.34 will resume the whole decline from 137.49 to 126.61 medium term fibonacci level. Nonetheless, sustained break of 132.45 will target 61.8% retracement at 134.37 first, before resuming the fall from 137.49.

In the bigger picture, current development argues that rise from 109.03 (2016 low) has completed at 137.49, on bearish divergence condition in weekly MACD. Deeper fall should be seen to 38.2% retracement of 109.03 to 137.49 at 126.61 first. On the upside, break of 137.49 is needed to confirm medium term rise resumption. Otherwise, risk will now stay on the downside even in case of strong rebound.

In the long term picture, at this point, EUR/JPY is staying in long term sideway pattern. established since 2000. Rise from 109.03 is seen as a leg inside the pattern. As long as 124.08 support holds, further rally is in favor in medium to long term through 149.76 high. However, break of 124.08 could extend the fall through 109.03 low instead.
