When you think of ways to profit from recent Japanese yen strength, the EURJPY is probably the last place you’d look.
Or at least it should be.
At the same time, the USDJPY has been on a one-way southbound train
The pair has now lost 450 pips since the short idea that materialized with the sub 109.80 close on February 27th.
Recent strength from both the euro and yen has created a stalemate for the EURJPY.
However, something has to give here.
Notice how the EURJPY has been range-bound for several weeks.
The range top comes in just above 121.00, while support is at 118.50.
Now, here’s the key:
We need to see a move below range support at 118.50 for the EURJPY to regain its bearish momentum.
Why am I focused on a move lower, you ask?
I’m more interested in shorts because of the downtrend that has been in place since the start of 2018.
Furthermore, the EURJPY broke down from an ascending channel at the end of January.
So, a continuation of that breakdown could be in the cards.
But I want to reiterate that the euro and yen are locked in a stalemate at the moment.
I also still think USDJPY is the best way to take advantage of yen strength as it’s also fueled by recent US dollar weakness.
However, a EURJPY trading sub 118.50 could become an interesting prospect for a move into the 2019 lows near 116.00.
