    "With the euro bouncing back and with stock indexes near seven-year highs, investors are starting to think that a lot of positive news is already reflected in lofty valuation levels and that it's time to book some profits." 
    - Barclays (based on CNBC)

    Pair's Outlook 
    On Wednesday, EUR/JPY negated Tuesday's losses, as it edged up. However, the Euro did not appreciate substantially and was unable to reach the initial resistance. At the end of the trading day the currency settled at 131.05 yen. Today the single currency is likely to bounce back, despite the mixed technical studies. If the Japanese figures do not disappoint later today, the single currency should weaken against the Yen. Closest support in this case lies around 130.63, represented by the 20-day SMA. 

    Traders' Sentiment 
    Traders retain a positive outlook towards the Euro, as 56% of them are long the Euro. Meanwhile, the bulls plan to take an even larger piece of the market, with 67% of the orders set to buy.
