EUR/JPY edged higher to 131.39 last week but quickly retreated. Initial bias is neutral this week first. The development argues that a short term top is possibly in place, with bearish divergence condition in 4 hour MACD. Break of 129.83 will confirm this bearish case and turn bias to the downside for 38.2% retracement of 122.39 to 131.39 at 127.95. But we'd expect strong support from there to contain downside and bring rebound. On the upside, break of 131.39 is needed to confirm rise resumption. Otherwise, more consolidative trading is expected with risk of another fall.
In the bigger picture, the down trend from 149.76 (2014 high) is completed at 109.03 (2016 low). Current rally from 109.03 should be at the same degree as the fall from 149.76 to 109.03. Further rise is expected to 61.8% retracement of 149.76 to 109.03 at 134.20. Sustained break there will pave the way to key long term resistance zone at 141.04/149.76. Medium term outlook will remain bullish as long as 124.08 resistance turned support holds.
In the long term picture, at this point, there is no clear indication that rise from 109.03 is resuming that from 94.11. Hence, we'd be cautious on topping below 149.76 to extend range trading. Nonetheless, firm break of 149.76 will indicates strong underlying buying. In such case, EUR/JPY will target 100% projection of 94.11 to 149.76 from 109.03 at 164.68.
