EUR/JPY awaits impetus below 135 handle

FXStreet (Guatemala) - EUR/JPY has been a drift to the upside with a relatively robust euro while the greenback has gathered up the 120 handle again, but running into offers at the 50 SMA on the hourly sticks slowing up the momentum ahead of the 200 SMA at 120.15 today.

Up ahead we have Yellen talking, but she is unlikely to stir up a catalyst or give anything away in respect of timings of a rate hike that has not already been priced in. Risk is mixed while equities on Wall Street are ending in the red.

EUR/JPY targets 135 handle
