EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Topside Breakout Attempted

Ilya Spivak

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis - Prices are testing above resistance at 132.38, the July 22 high, a barrier reinforced by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 132.51. A break above the latter on a daily closing basis would invalidate the Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern identified earlier and expose the 38.2% level at 133.59. Trend line support is now at 131.04, with a reversal below that eyeing the 23.6% Fib retracement at 130.62.
