After breaking the channel we are still waiting for the Moving Average of the pair.

Since the EUR/JPY pair broke down the price channel last month, it is still fighting to make new highs below the channel. The pair retested it a few times before, the last one happening the previous week when the pair reached the resistance area 134.40-50 and now it has been declining for two days to trade at 133.12.

In our previous article about the pair we said that we would sell the pair once it broke the moving average down, but the pair didn’t make it. Instead, it just touched the MA and back to rise again. That is why up until now we could not take buy positions - because the pair couldn’t break above the resistance level and the stochastic indicator had been giving us the sell signal. Now we have a strong support area at the SMA 50 at 132.31.

The Next Few Days

Based on this simple analysis of the pair, after retesting the channel we are going to sell the pair at the current level 133.12 and keep our target at 132.35. We are going to wait for the SMA breaking down, then we can sell again below 131.30 and our target for this trade will be at 126.50. However, this whole scenario depends on the pair still trading below the resistance level 134.50.

This week the market doesn’t bring any hot news from the European Union or Japan, except the speeches of the Central Bank's president Draghi today and Friday, and Bank of Japan governor Kuroda on Thursday.
