Even though the European currency failed at reaching the immediate resistance on Friday, the EUR/JPY pair still ended the day with a 21-pip rally. Neither the key support nor the resistance are broken, suggesting the Euro is likely to resume trade within its current consolidation trend. However, the cross had only tested the down-trend near the 2015 low; and we expect price to close near to that area in the future, and eventually rebound towards the resistance line around the major level of 131.00.
Today 53% of traders are long the Euro, compared to 54% on Friday. Meanwhile, the portion of orders to purchase the single currency added four percentage points, up to a total of 52%.
