EUR/JPY Daily Outlook
Daily Pivots: (S1) 131.76; (P) 132.15; (R1) 132.44;
Outlook in EUR/JPY remains unchanged. Corrective rise from 128.94 has completed at 133.47 already. Deeper decline should be seen back to retest 128.94 low. Break there will resume whole decline from 137.49. On the upside, above 133.47 will extend the rebound. But we expect strong resistance from 61.8% retracement of 137.49 to 128.94 at 134.22 to limit upside and bring near term reversal eventually.

GBP/JPY’s fall from 153.84 is still in progress and deeper decline would be seen to 148.37 support first. Current fall from 153.84 is seen as the third leg of the corrective pattern from 156.59. Break of 148.37 will pave the way to 144.97 and below. On the upside, break of 152.71 resistance is needed to indicate completion of the decline. Otherwise, near term outlook will remain cautiously bearish in case of recovery.
