EUR/JPY Technical Analysis: Trapped in a descending broadening wedge
EUR/JPY's pullback from the Jan. 9 high of 125.09 has taken the shape of a descending broadening wedge - a bullish continuation pattern.
- A break above the upper edge of the broadening wedge, currently at 124.68, would refresh or revive the rally from recent lows near 121.00 and could yield a convincing break above 125.00.
- Forcing a breakout, however, would prove to be a tough task, if the S&P 500 futures drop sharply, pushing the anti-risk JPY higher. As of writing, the S&P 500 futures are down 0.10 percent on the day.
- Further, the major exponential moving averages (50, 100, 200) are located one below the other, indicating the path of least resistance is to the downside.
