EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of EUR/JPY is sitting close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. 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. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 90 day timeframe. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days EUR/JPY’s price has gone up 17 them. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
