Forex Technical Update

Previous: JPY - Bullish Momentum Tested in the 1H Time-Frame (USD/JPY, EUR/JPY, GBP/JPY) (4/11)



The EUR/JPY rallied from 104.43 to 107.03 in an abc wave fashion seen in the 4H chart. Relative to the latest down swing, this was a 78.6% retracement. The 4H chart also shows that the RSI is held below 60 and attacking 40. A return below 40 reflects bearish continuation momentum. Price action made a lower high, but the RSI reading made a higher high. This is known as a negative reversal signal and suggests we have another leg in this bear run.

A conventional swing projection targets the 105.00 area.


The daily chart shows lower support levels, with 50% retracement of the 97.03-111.42 rally at 104.22. Then a more important support cluster resides around 102.50, with 61.8% retracement and a previous pivot area here.
