8/11/2009 € EUR/JPY € After approaching resistance in the 139.00 price region, price action on EUR/JPY, a daily chart of which is shown, has respected that resistance zone by beginning a possible reversal of the short-term uptrend that has been in place since early July. This bearish turn has manifested itself in a tentative breakdown of a significant uptrend support line. In the event of a close and bearish continuation of the breakdown below this trendline, a clear support target further to the downside resides in the key 131.00 price region. Major upside resistance continues to reside in the 139.00 price region.
