EUR/JPY levels

EUR/JPY resistance ahead looks solid at the 20 day ma at 121.28, although analysts at Commerzbank argued that this could eventually be eroded, "The market has recently held the 38.2% retracement of the move from October at 119.70, on a closing basis and very near term we suspect is trying to base. Stronger resistance is seen circa 122.54 (cloud). But key near-term resistance is the 6-week downtrend at 123.11 and this is our near-term target."
