EURJPY  analysis – Pair alternate gains with losses around 118.00


EURJPY is alternating gains with losses in the 118.00 neighbourhood in the second half of the week.

22 August 2019, GKFX – The cross is prolonging the sideline theme around the 118.00 mark against the backdrop of the offered bias surrounding the Japanese safe haven and renewed weakness in the European currency.

In fact, EUR could not sustain the post-PMIs optimism and it has quickly reversed the upbeat momentum, while yields of the key US 10-year note are flirting with weekly highs in the boundaries of 1.62%.

Data wise earlier today, flash PMIs in core Euroland are seen reversing the prevailing downtrend in August, while the ECB minutes noted the economic slowdown could be here more than expected. In Japan, key inflation figures are due tomorrow and Fed’s Chief Powell will speak at Jackson Hole Symposium also on Friday.

EURJPY technical analysis

At the moment the cross is down 0.07% at 118.10 and a breach of 117.51 (2019 low Aug.12) would open the door to 114.85 (2017 low Apr.17) and finally 113.71 (monthly low Nov.9 2016). On the upside, the next hurdle emerges at 119.01 (21-day SMA) followed by 119.87 (high Aug.6) and then 120.72 (55-day SMA).
