The pair has moved significantly lower since the November highs last year and then reversed from a 2013 consolidation area. The weekly pivot candle had a narrow range between open and closing price and since then price has moved close to 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 137.64. The level coincides with a weekly high and is therefore a likely resistance level. Stochastics and Relative Strength Index (RSI) are crossing over from oversold levels giving bullish indication. However, the sideways market from July to October last year is a likely resistance area and I am expecting it to bring to price closer to latest weekly lows again.
EURJPY has broken out of the down trend after an overshoot to the downside. The 26th January candle was a rejection candle and formed the pivot low for this potential bottoming formation. Stochastics has moved into overbought territory for the first time since November last year and price is edging closer to a resistance level at 137.26 and the 38.2% Fibonacci level at 137.72. There is a support level (former resistance) that roughly coincides with the 23.6% Fibonacci level and was supporting price at the time of writing. The next level of support is in the 133.68 region, while the daily Bollinger Bands are also worth keeping an eye on especially when they are in the proximity of the previous downward channel high.

Price has reacted from the upper end of a short term bull channel and reached the recent sideways range that is now supporting price. Should this support fail, the next significant support area is at 133.42 to 133.67 where the 50% Fibonacci level, the lower Bollinger bands and the channel low coincide.
The pivot candle from two weeks ago had a narrow range between open and closing price, which implies that the big time frame supply and demand were in balance at those levels. Stochastics and Relative Strength Index (RSI) are crossing over from oversold levels which together with the weekly pivot candle (being relatively close to the current price) gives a longer term bullish indication. However, the fact that this is taking place just below a sideways range from the latter half of 2014 means that there is resistance above. In the daily picture the Stochastics have moved into overbought territory for the first time since November last year and the pair is now getting closer to a resistance level at 137.26 and the 38.2% Fibonacci level at 137.72. This is a long term bullish but short term bearish indication as the price is likely to correct lower from overbought levels but in the longer term picture this is a sign of the down move is likely now over. As usual, I am interested in shorts against the resistance levels and longs at supports providing the multi time frame analysis and momentum reversal signals confirm the validity of the levels.
