Clears Key Support

EURJPY TECHS
  • RES 4: 141.06 High Jun 4 2015 and a key resistance
  • RES 3: 140.87 0.50 proj of the Mar 7 - 28 - Apr 5 price swing
  • RES 2: 138.32/140.00 High May 9 / High Apr 21 and the bull trigger
  • RES 1: 136.75 High May 12

  • SUP 1: 132.66/65 Low May 12 / 3.0% 10-dma envelope

  • SUP 3: 132.20 50% retracement of the Mar 7 - Apr 21 bull phase
  • SUP 4: 131.59 Low Mar 22

EURJPY fell sharply Thursday and remains vulnerable. The move lower marks an extension of the reversal from Apr 21. The cross has breached a number of important S/T support levels, clearing the 50-day EMA, at 134.99, and the Apr 5 low of 134.30. An extension lower would signal scope for a deeper retracement towards 132.27 initially - the 100-dma, before the 50% retracement of the Mar 7 - Apr 21 comes into play. Initial resistance is 136.75.
