Despite strong volatility to the upside, the EUR/JPY cross still declined on Wednesday, but not as much as anticipated. Rather than finding support at the lower Bollinger band, the pair encountered it at the 136.00 major level. If the Euro manages to rebound from this area, the resistance cluster around 137.00 should limit any gains. Nonetheless, technical indicators are now giving bearish signals, suggesting the single currency is to edge lower against the Yen, with the nearest support located around 135.54, namely the Bollinger band.
Traders' sentiment worsened again, as only 45% positions are long. The number of buy orders returned to its Tuesday's level of 26%.
