EUR/JPY testing grounds in the 137 zone

FXStreet (Barcelona) - EUR/JPY is trading at 136.94, up 0.01% on the day, having posted a daily high at 137.10 and low at 136.49.

EUR/JPY has been a big mover rallying a cent to the topside. It has been still indicated to fail circa 137.25 by Karen Jones, chief analyst at Commerzbank and she said it is possible that we will see a deeper retracement in the near term. “The market is regarded as being under pressure while below the 138.45/52 pivot and a negative bias is entrenched while capped here”.

Fundamentally, the pair has benefited by some better numbers from the EZ and indeed a return to risk sentiment has improved which is never good news for the Yen. Yesterday was a big day for US stocks that left the Yen for dust. The next big event will come over the weekend, and this could be a major impactor on this pair given the nature of the risk that could turn out positive or negative from a global and European perspective. The risk event is of course the ECB’s stress test.
