12/04/2009 – EUR/JPY – Within the past week, yen weakening has been one of the dominant themes, as shown on the accompanying EUR/JPY daily chart. This yen weakening has manifested itself as significant recoveries in the USD/JPY as well as all of the major yen crosses. Price action on EUR/JPY has been traveling in a well-defined trading range with no discernible long-term trend since March. The current bullishness in the pair is an extension of a pronounced bounce off the bottom of the range, around the 127.00 support region, where a clear hammer candle formed. Further yen weakness off of this range support bounce could potentially target the top of the range, around the general 139.00 resistance area.
