EUR/JPY Analysis Forecast For 22 May 2015

Analysis and Recommendations (EUR/JPY Forecast 22 May):

The EUR/JPY gained 14 points to trade at 134.77 as the euro recovered a bit from the declines over the last few days. Traders are keeping close tabs on the BOJ’s two-day policy meeting through Friday after the Nikkei business daily said the central bank may reassess the state of the domestic economy in light of strong first-quarter growth and signs of a rebound in consumer spending. The euro rose slightly against the dollar and the yen, paring some of its recent losses triggered by the European Central Bank’s reported plan to front-load its bond buying program in May and June.

The euro pared its first weekly loss since April as the European Central Bank’s renewed emphasis on stimulus was countered by uncertainty over the Federal Reserve’s path towards monetary tightening.

The common currency has declined 2.9 percent this week against the dollar as the ECB pledged to front-load its debt purchases.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis Forecast

Although EURJPY is in an uptrend, currently horizontal movement is effective novadays. As long as the parity stays over 133.40, we can say that up trend continues. At this time, 135,30 and 135,85 levels would be seen. Otherwise the targets below are 134.25 and 133.75. To be in SELL positions, traders should wait to get below 133.40 and get a couple of hourly closings below this level.
