EUR/JPY within a band looking for a break

FXStreet (Guatemala) - EUR/JPY is trading at 138.85, up 0.20% on the day, having posted a daily high at 139.16 and low at 138.57.

EUR/JPY has been caught up in a band between 138.60 and 139.00 resistance with a brief break to the upside that challenged that resistance but offers were met before 139.02. Should there be a break to the downside, Karen Jones, chief analyst at Commerzbank explained that the Elliott wave count on the daily chart suggests a correction lower should terminate now circa 137.90. “Near term rallies will need to regain 140.10 in order to reassert upside pressure at this point and trigger a move to 141.88 and 143.55 (61.8% and 78.6% retracement of the move seen this year)”.
