EUR/JPY reversing Thursday gains, 136.50 support under threat

FXStreet (Moscow) - EUR/JPY is losing ground. The cross started the day at 136.90 and retreated towards current level of 136.63 on the back of JPY strength

EUR/JPY daily chart is telling a big story. The cross staged an impressive rally from under 136.00 up to 137.00 high and Eurozone Flash PMI has nothing to do with it. JPY was losing ground across the board on the back of improved risk sentiments following positive US corporate earnings reports. Asian session has brought profit-taking ahead of the weekend, while news of Ebola case registered in NY causes move back to safety. Ahead looks like a quiet calendar, so the cross might be influenced by technical factors and position adjustment ahead of EU banks stress tests to be published on Sunday.
