EUR/JPY Price Analysis: Technical Perspective
Following a recovery from the Jan 19 daily low of 137.91 to the Jan 25 daily high of 142.29, USD/JPY remains stuck in a 250 point range within the 140.75-142.39 zone for five days . Furthermore, the 20-day EMA at 140.94 and the 50-day EMA at 141.70 acted as support/resistance for the range. Therefore, EUR/JPY is trendless in the absence of a catalyst.
