Relative to other instruments in the Forex asset class, EUR/JPY ranked 22nd the previous day in terms of percentage price change. Let’s take a look at price chart of EUR/JPY.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that EUR/JPY is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 200 day average, which is 27.1 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. For additional context, note that price has gone up 9 out of the past 14 days. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
