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 20 day average, which is 29.9 pips away. 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. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. For additional context, note that price has gone down 7 out of the past 14 days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there are doji and pin bar patterns showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
