- EUR/JPY’s strong pullback on Wednesday halted around 127.30.
- The YTD high near 128.50 (February 17) now emerges as the next target.
Following new YTD peaks in the 128.50 zone on Wednesday, EUR/JPY triggered a corrective downside to the 127.30 region so far.
The bullish move in place in the last couple of weeks appears unchanged and is expected to retest the mid-128.00s. A convincing surpass of this area should expose the 129.30 zone (November 29/December 13 2018 highs) ahead of the psychological hurdle at 130.00. Further up comes in monthly peaks at 130.14 (November 7 2018).
Reinforcing the idea of further upside, EUR/JPY keeps trading above the immediate support line (off November 19 2020 low) near 126.40.
Looking at the broader picture, while above the 200-day SMA at 123.89 the outlook for the cross should remain constructive.
