EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Short-term bias still bullish but momentum eases

  • The euro is rising for the second day in a row against the yen but retreated significantly from the top, signaling difficulties to the upside. 
  • The move higher lost strength slightly below 130.00 and a consolidation on top would clear the way to more gains. Before that level, it needs to break and hold above 129.75. 
  • The current short-term bias is not clear, the key support is seen around 128.75 (20-SMA in 4 hour chart) and then at 128.50 (also the 20-day moving average). A daily close under 128.50 would increase the odds of a test of 128.00 and of September lows at 127.84.
