EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Consolidates after 100-pip gain as EUR/JPY fails to break above last week’s high

  • EUR/JPY gained about 100 pips on Monday but bulls ran out of steam as they couldn’t break above last week’s high and the 130.00 level.
  • EUR/JPY bulls were also capped by the 200-period simple moving average (4-hour) and the descending trendline from April 24. Although the short-term momentum is bullish a failure to break above last week’s high at 130.29 could lead to a triangle consolidation.
  • However, a strong bull breakout above 130.29 would likely lift EUR/JPY towards the 131.00 figure.
