EURJPY – Large triangle formation offers a downward bias

Monthly: Posted a bearish Outside Month in March. This pattern often highlights the top of a trend and the start of a new downward bias. For the last 9months we have seen mixed results with levels close to the March Marabuzo of 132.79 (mid-point from open and close) finding sellers. November posted an Inside Harami Candle, a clear sign of investor indecision.

EURJPY

Weekly: Holds within an Expanding Wedge formation. This pattern has an eventual bias to break to the downside. Trend line support is currently located at 125.96. The measured moved target is the start of the wedge at 109.20. To the upside, 132.00 to 134.00 is a previous congestion zone.

EURJPY

Daily: Mixed trading for the last 42 (trading) days has resulted in a large symmetrical triangle being posted on the daily chart. This formation has a bias to break to the downside. The measured move target is 124.13. With Non-Farm Payroll figures to be released later today, we could see the impulse beak to the downside needed to trigger to lower sentiment.

EURJPY

We look to sell a break of 127.67

Stop: 128.27

Targets: 126.00 and 124.20

Risk Warning

Trading spot foreign exchange and futures on margin carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all investors. You may lose all your capital. Losses can exceed deposits. Past performance is not indicative of future results. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in spot foreign exchange or futures you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. If you are in any doubt about investment or the mechanics of such products, you should seek independent financial advice.

If you purchase a commodity option, your capital is at risk and you may sustain a total loss of the premium and all of the transaction cost.

If you purchase or sell a commodity future or sell a commodity option, your capital is at risk and you may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds and any additional funds that you deposit with your broker to establish or maintain your position.

If the market moves against your position, your capital is at risk and you may be called upon by your broker to deposit a substantial amount of additional margin funds, on short notice, in order to maintain your position.

If you do not provide the required funds within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated at a loss, and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account.

During certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a trading position. This can occur, for example, when the market makes a "limit move". The placement of contingent orders by you or your trading advisor, such as a "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amount, since the market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders.

The high degree of leverage that is obtainable through for example futures trading, options trading, Spread Betting, Binary Betting and CFD trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains. This brief statement cannot disclose all the risks and other significant aspects of the commodity markets, including trading shares, currencies, and stock indices. You should therefore carefully study financial trading before you enter the financial markets with the view of buying and selling, including shorting, securities in the market place.

Before deciding to invest in spot foreign exchange or futures you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with spot foreign exchange and futures trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor (IFA) if you have any doubts.
