EUR/JPY off highs, returns to 136.00

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - The single currency is now losing the grip vs. its Japanese peer on Wednesday, sending EUR/JPY to test the 136.00 neighbourhood.

EUR/JPY capped by 100-day ma

The cross made a run to session highs near 136.40 overnight, where currently sits the 100-day ma, although the lack of follow through triggered the current leg lower to the 136.10/00 band following the opening bell in Euroland.

Data wise, Japanese trade deficit shrunk to ¥115 billion during September while the key All Industries Activity Index has contracted -0.2% MoM during August. No events in Euroland today although the cautious tone is expected to swell in light of the upcoming ECB gathering.

EUR/JPY significant levels

The cross is now up 0.06% at 136.05 with the next hurdle at 136.38 (100-day ma) followed by 137.00 (psychological level) and then 137.53 (23.6% Fibo of April-June upside). On the other hand, a breach of 135.85 (55d-ma) would aim for 134.56 (200-day ma) and finally 134.35 (uptrend from September low).
