The EUR/JPY pair seems to have found acceptance above 131.00 as the Yen nosedived on Wednesday. What do most economists expect of the German CPI due to be released today? this 29 March EURJPY Technical Analysis will show.
29 March, GKFX – Currently, the pair is trading in a sideways manner around 131.43, having clocked a high of 131.147 yesterday.
EUR/JPY risk reversals retrace EUR bearish bias
The pick up from the March 23 low of 128.94 has been accompanied by a rise in the one-month 25 delta risk reversals from -1.40 to -1.07 – the highest level since Feb. 2, indicating a drop in implied volatility premium (drop in demand) for the EUR puts (sell EUR).
The improvement in the risk reversals also means the investors believe the recent rise in the EUR/JPY is here to stay and could be extended further to the 200-day moving average seen at 131.95.
Focus on the German preliminary CPI
The German preliminary CPI reading for March is expected to print at 1.7 percent year-on-year vs. Feb reading of 1.4 percent. A better-than-expected figure could strengthen the bid tone around the common currency. Meanwhile, a weak print may push the EUR/JPY cross back below 131.00. Also, risk aversion in the stocks may play a spoilsport.
