EURJPY initially traded higher Tuesday before reversing course. The recent uptrend remains intact for now and cross continues to trade above the 20-day EMA which intersects at 145.93. A clear break of this average would be seen as a short-term bearish development. Note too that Tuesday’s sell-off does appear to be a bearish engulfing candle - a potential warning to bulls. Key resistance and the bull trigger is 148.62, Tuesday’s high.
