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 averages, located at 121.2305, 118.4082, 118.4858 and 119.627 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 34.9 pips away. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 30 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days EUR/JPY’s price has gone down 6 them. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
