EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

Coming into today 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 64.9 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 100 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Volatility for EUR/JPY has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days EUR/JPY’s price has gone down 5 them. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
