Trying to stay above 137.00

EUR/JPY gained nearly 100 pips on Wednesday on the back of EUR rally against USD. Stronger JPY was a kind of drag and kept the cross from breaking above 138.00 pivot (intraday high is set at 137.93). During Asian hours EUR/JPY is usually dominated by Yen sentiments, that’s why the cross has slid towards 137.45. Though things may change once European traders join the game. Draghi is the biggest name on European dance card today. Keep your eyes peeled for spikes of volatility.
